Sliabh Liag / Slieve League
Sliabh a'liag dominates the lower half of the Glen river valley. Geologists tell us that the Sliabh Liag - pronounced "Slieve League" cliff rocks were laid down on the bottom of a long vanished ocean half a billion years ago.
During a visit to Bunglass pronounced "Bunglas" or Carrigan Head the stresses and strains the area has been subject to can be seen. More recent geological events such as the ice ages of the past million years has carved out the two corries, which hold Lough Agh and Croleavy Lough
Highest cliffs in Europe
Sliabh Liag /Slieve League sea cliffs are the highest cliffs in Europe at 900ft (300m). The highest point on the Sliabh a Liag cliffs is where the Ordinance survey cement triangle point marks it at 1,972 ft or 600 metres. If you have a good head for heights there is an incredibly beautiful walk from Bunglas to Malinbeg near Glencolmcille.
One Man's Pass
The One Man's pass walk is not for the faint hearted with spectacular and impressive scenery right along the cliffs. To reach the starting point for this walk, take the dramatic 6 km drive beyond Teelin to Bunglas Point along roads with hairpin bends and steep drops to the sea.
From the viewing point there are terrific views across Donegal Bay towards the mountains of Sligo and Mayo. To the west is the North Atlantic Ocean as far as the eye can see. To the North West is Rathlin O'Byrne island and Glencolmcille. A short walk will take you to the right of the amazing cliff face of Bunglas which rises over 306m above the ocean. Bunglas literally means end of the cliff.
