As well as breath taking cliff walks with views on wild scenery, ruined promontory forts and early oratories there are many more sights not to miss, a natural bridge (Bridges of Ross), the Moneen Church with its ‘Little Ark’, a wooden mobile hut, which once served as a church in earlier times, as well as a number of rare birds, whales, dolphins and seals.
