Sliabh Beagh Walk, Clogher Valley

The walk, part of the Ulster Way, traverses a pastoral landscape before plunging into Favour Royal Forest and Altadaven Wood. The latter is the site of St Patrick’s Chair. Tradition has it that Ireland’s patron Saint said Mass on this chair and blessed the nearby well, imbuing its water with great healing powers. The woods are also a stronghold of the native red squirrel and the sheltered valley boasts an abundance of wildflowers and ferns. Walkers can find newts, frogs, dragonflies and murragh flies as well as a host of plant life including willow and horsetails in and around the many loughs of the Sliabh Beagh Way.

Distance: 7.5 miles
