Up, Up and Away


Have any of you ever seen the town, city you live in from the air? Neither had I until last week and I can assure you that my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner. Cutting Edge Helicopters are Northern Ireland’s premier helicopter Charter Company situated out at the City of Derry Airport.

They do a number of different tours of Londonderry, Donegal and Inishowen, North Coast lasting between 30-60 minutes. The one we opted for was a 30 minute North Coast sightseeing Tour which started at Eglinton and went as far as the pier at Castlerock and Portstewart strand.

It covers the River Foyle and its surrounding towns and villages, spectacular views of Inishowen and Donegal before flying alongside Binevenagh Mountain. Anybody that knows me will know that I have a bit of an obsession with Mussenden Temple and Downhill Demesne so to see it from the sky was a an amazing experience.

I will let my Birdseye view pictures tell you the rest…
