Pictures: Ireland of savage beauty

Europe

The North West exudes, as Oscar Wilde succinctly puts it, a 'savage beauty' infused with old fashioned charm and abundant character.Bleak, remote and wondrous  a beach in Donegal.Donegal Castle  one of many you will stumble upon.On the Wild Atlantic Way, well-signposted though it is, you will be constantly lured off the beaten track.The emphasis is very much on community.Even if the often inclement weather envelopes you, in every other inhabited wayfarers haven, be it a small cottage or large inn, there is no shortage of steaming hot water at the end of a hard days ride.Donegal is a photographers  if not a bird watchers  paradise, provided you do not suffer from vertigo.

It’s an old, old place, this. A place of fairies. A place of myths and legend. It has not been civilised by the onward march of technology and still remains untamed.
