Inishowen & Lough Swilly.

Looking out at high tide from the middle of the Farland Bank to Inch Castle. The building is now inhabited by owls and such but used to be one of four fortresses built in the area by one local chieftain. Fishing has long been a local business but the days of catching herring off the island are very long gone and now it is shellfish farming with some seasonal salmon netting that keeps a few people in work. Closer to the open sea there are large salmon farms.

Another view of the Castle this time from the island shore at about half tide. The cottage by the shore can only be reached along the beach so don't try to drive there at high tide!
