Description

Cuilcagh mountain is the highest point of both counties Cavan and Fermanagh and the only true mountain in this part of the island of Ireland with a unique geological story to tell.  Limestone, mudstone and sandstones are commonplace.  While these rocks are common in Ireland, it is very unusual to find such a complete sequence all in one place. It is quite mind-boggling to think that as you ascend to the summit of Cuilcagh Mountain, you are climbing up through geological time, covering a period of about 8 million years in just less than 700metres.

The spectacular landscape of Cuilcagh is ideal for walking; whether a short stroll or some serious hill walking, there are routes to suit individuals of all abilities and levels of fitness. Walks are graded to show the level of difficulty while interpretation panels show route maps and features of interest to look out for. Each walking route is fully waymarked – so you do not have to be a map reading expert to follow the route. However, for safety you should always be properly equipped to deal with rapid changes of weather and visibility in an exposed and remote upland location like Cuilcagh Mountain.
