    A couple of kms from Slade is the end of the peninsula where the Atlantic comes roaring up the inlet of the Muir Ceilteach.You can walk right out to end from the carpark, but beware of the wind. The carpark also serves the shop, café and info centre where you can visit the Hook Head lighthouse. This lighthouse is the oldest operational lighthouse in the world dating from the 13th c and has 115 steps to the top. Here is the info for the guided tours :

    and here for the general view :
    There is also a memorial bench and stone, with a quotation from Helen Marshall's "Afterglow". It would seem that "Paul" was a diver here.
