Grianan of Aileach

The Stone Fort of Grianán of Aileach sits on a hilltop in Inishowen County Donegal. 250m above sea
level, the stone fort was probably first built on an earthen rath. The view from Aileach is breathtaking. The glistening waters of Lough Foyle and Lough Swilly are clear, as is the form of the entire peninsula. A windy and exposed place, Grianán has been a silent witness to the history of Ireland.
