    The area surrounding this park seems barren and bleak to folks not from Great Britain, but this park surrounding Lough Beagh seems to be a colourful oasis. Near the centre of the park, overlooking the lake, is Glenveagh Castle.

    The castle is made from rough-hewn granite, built in the years 1870-1873. Many of the rooms inside are still furnished. It can only be visited by guided tours, available several times a day.

    There are 11 hectares of gardens surrounding the castle, much of it wooded. This is a wonderful place to have a walk with the children.

    There is also more serious hill walking available in the park's 16,958 hectares.
