A Week In Donegal - Day 3 - Malin More And Glencolmcille

If there's one area of Donegal a megalith enthusiast should visit it is Malin More. With so many tombs to see it is an amazing area. We had arranged to meet up with Tatjana Kytmannow, who knows this area very well.

We met up at the mighty Malin More court tomb and then visited the one double portal tomb that I had never managed to find, before heading off to see some of the other tombs in the townland. After exploring Malin More we headed for Glencolmcille to see the court tomb at Faranmacbride and to take a tour of some of the cross pillars that are dotted all around the area.

We had a great day seeing everything. Tatjana was going to stay overnight, but the weather turned ugly and she headed home. Tomorrow myself and Uta decided to go to see two old churches on an island. This has become a year of islands for me.
