The Slated Derelict Cottage

You don’t have to travel far in Donegal to find an old derelict cottage with most dating as far back as the famine. The traditional roof of a cottage would have been thatched but it’s not uncommon to find an old cottage with a slated roof.

Slated Cottage

On the road to the Bloody Foreland this derelict cottage can be found before an area name Brinlack. With its slated roof it’s very difficult to determine what age the cottage might be and if the roof was once thatched, I should have asked one of the locals when I had the chance.
