Altachullion View point

The contrasting views from Altachullion offer a rare chance to see the more rugged northern landscapes of the Geopark dominated by Cuilcagh Mountain, alongside the gently rolling drumlin lowlands that dominate the southern part of the region.

The area immediately surrounding the viewpoint is home to one of the largest expanses of intact blanket bog in Ireland, protected as a Special Area of Conservation and including many interesting plant species such as deer grass and bog asphodel.  The area is also home to rare bird species such as Golden Plover, Peregrine and Merlin.
