Walking the Sperrin Hills

Listed under Walking in Northern Ireland, United Kingdom.

Pin It

The Sperrin Hills in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland - small in compass, superb in range and atmosphere - Martin McGuigan (028 8075 8452. Mob: 07714 835 977 ) is the man here. Background by editor: The peaty, fertile Sperrin Mountains foothills are thick with oak and elms and crossed by streams and trails but closer to the peaks and ridges of the mountains themselves the terrain is firm and rocky, making for relatively comfortable climbing. The views from high up on the mountains extend north to the Mourne Mountains and east to the Foyle estuary. With multiple mountains making up this range there are many different trails to choose from. Several towns edge the mountain range and there are also plenty of campsites for people on longer journeys. Hillwalking festivals are held from June onwards so you’re likely to have company and camaraderie if you travel during festival time.
