The roads that cross here are Killea Road and Creevagh Road. From the opening scene, the roads straight on (Creevagh Rd.) and to the left (Killea Rd.) are running down hill and the road behind (Creevagh Rd.) and to the right (Killea Rd.) are uphill. If we followed either road downhill we would, within a few hundred metres, cross the border into County Donegal. If we followed either of them uphill we would be heading back towards Derry city centre.
Most of the landscape included in the panorama is in County Donegal. The eagle-eyed viewer, who is familiar with Donegal's mountains, may spot on the horizon as the panorama opens, the characteristic shape of the mountain range from Muckish to Erigal in West Donegal.
The area with the rolling fields straight in front is called Bogay. Local artist, Julius Guzy, has made a painting called “View at Bogay near Derry” which was inspired by the view from this spot.
Approaching from the left is a tractor and trailer transporting grain. Beyond the tractor down the Killea Road is the border village of Killea it has been expanded hugely by housing developments in the last decade or so.
