At the end of an adventurous day, retire to the master bedroom, which is spacious with quirky furnishings, or you have a double and a single room to choose from. You are just a short walk to the rocky shores of Culoort, where you can get edible seaweed and hunt in the rock pools. The kids can enjoy games on the football pitch nearby and you can listen to the rare sounds of the corncrake bird from the fields directly opposite the cottage. The area is also a good place for hunting rare insect eating plants just up the road, with the Oyster Plant hiding down at the shores. You can enjoy swimming at the sandy beaches close by and later try crab and lobster down at the pier, while in winter you can sometimes see the fabulous Northern Lights among some of the darkest skies in the area. The wonderful sweep of the Malin Head coastline is rugged, unspoilt and steeped in history, with walking, fishing and swimming, while it is also home to a variety of rare flora. It is a favoured spot for birdwatching and catching glimpses of whales and dolphins out at sea. An interesting spot to venture to on one of your walks is the Wee House at Malin, an old ruined church, former home to a 6th-century saint, and a cave nestled right against the water, where you can make a wish while admiring the breath-taking scenery. Ballyhillion Beach is also worth a visit, home a unique raised beach dating back to the Ice Age, when the sea levels were a lot higher than they are now, making the region well-known for its semi-precious stones.
