Malin Head is the most northerly point on the island of Ireland. A great destination for a challenge ´bike run - you can´t go any further! Spectacular views across to the Scottish islands and to the uninhabited island of Inishtrahull, 6 miles to the northeast. Beautiful seascape - this is the north Atlantic, after all! The waters off Malin were the battleground in two world wars - U boats, Allied aircraft, convoy protection battleships etc - a spectacular number of wrecks lie off here. Visit the Sea View Tavern for a coffee overlooking Inishtrahull Sound (a submarine trench drops to 90 metres depth)visist this website : www.loughs-agency.org/discover/activities/motorcycling-test
