Offers of over €200,000 are being sought for the landmark former coastguard station in Buncrana which is now on the market.

As the Derry Journal reports, the building dates from around 1870 and served as the Co Donegal town’s coastguard station between 1880 and 1923.

It continues to enjoy a towering presence in the area, with views over Buncrana Harbour, Mill River and Lough Scilly.

“The accommodation is well proportioned with high ceilings, Oriel windows and deep window seats which create plenty of character,” McLernon Estate Agents say.
