The village of Portsalon with its little harbour lies midway along the eastern fringe of the Fanad Peninsula in north Donegal. Across the broad expanse of Lough Swilly the hills of the Inishowen Peninsula are visible - during the summer months a car ferry service connects nearby Rathmullan with Buncrana, a route which opens up some interesting day trips possibilities. Fanad Head, with its imposing lighthouse and broad vistas over the north Atlantic Ocean, can be reached in 15 mins by car.
If you look through tourism brochures for Donegal you are almost certain to see a photo of Ballymastocker Bay, arguably the finest beach in Ireland and listed in The Guardian's list of top "ten beaches in the world". With approx 3km of golden sand and surrounded by mountains on one side and one of Ireland's deepest natural harbours on the other, Ballymastocker is an awe inspiring sight. No.2 Knockalla Cottage is located within 10 min walk of this great natural asset - enjoyed in equal measure by walkers, surfers and surf fishermen.
