The Electric Stone Age Tour

1 Days Easy

Hop on your ultra modern electric bike and cycle all the way back to the stone age! On your journey, have a little peek at every age in between! The area around Glencolmcille is a Pandora’s Box of archaeological treasures, beautifully wrapped in one of the world’s most dramatic landscapes.

Leave Carrick. Cycle along the foot of majestic Sliabh Liag (Slieve League), where locals harvest peat for winter fuel. Reach the Malinmore valley and stop to view the stone age Cloghanmore Court Tomb. Further along, you will find a unique site where six bronze age dolmens stand in a line.

From Malinmore, follow the coast to Malinbeg, where the road ends overlooking the Silver Strand – surely one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. If you find it hard to leave this enchanting place, don’t worry, the cycle to the Glencolmcille Folk Museum is equally beautiful and dramatic. Enjoy a tasty lunch at the museum’s café and see traditional cottages from the 18th Century onwards. After lunch spend some time exploring the many sites of the Glencolmcille “Turas”. The Turas is a traditional pilgrimage around many of the valley’s historic landmarks – most notably the beautifully inscribed early Christian standing stones.

Enriched by your journey through the ages, climb out of the valley at ease on your electric bike – and back to the present day!
