On your next day out in Fermanagh, why not consider a walk at Cuilcagh Mountain Park. At 665m, Cuilcagh is the highest point in Fermanagh, and the only true mountain. Its distinctive table-top profile is easily identified across the region and forms the focus of an area rich in geology, archaeology, folklore, flora and fauna.
The mountain itself is topped by gritstone, exposed in places as dramatic cliffs sweeping down to the lower sandstone and shale slopes.
The middle slopes of Cuilcagh Mountain are covered with a thick layer of peat and form one of the best examples of a blanket bog ecosystem in the north of Ireland.
The lower slopes of Cuilcagh Mountain are formed of limestone with its associated (karst) landforms and complex cave systems.
