Binevenagh view point may also be called Gortmore but in the many years I lived here it was always referred to as Binevenagh, indeed it was the view from my front window. It has a nice little bit of history to it also and is now on the “Causeway Coast Route”. Sited on the Bishop road on top of the hill called Binevenagh the views of Magilligan, Castlerock, Portrush and Portstewart can all be seen but on a really good day you might be lucky enough to see across Lough Foyle to Inishowen or even the Scottish Isles of Jura and Islay. Benone complex and strand are easily seen and a great vantage point to get wonderful scenic pictures. While here you can read how the “Broither Gold” was found and where it is exhibited and also find out about the “Irish Neptune”. A nice drive in the car or a great track for motorbikes but either way I recommend warm clothing as if the north wind is there it is chilly. Great scenery and if you return via the Tircrevan road there is still a WW ll pill box in its original state. A beautiful part of the world and as an add on I noticed in my photos there is a plaque which also calls this place the “Bishops view”, new to me! Not many people can say they were standing at the north coast of Northern Ireland and facing north but looking directly into Southern Ireland, you can here!
