This week's walk of the week is Tully Castle.


This charming walk takes in the castle grounds with commanding views of the castle ruins and the surrounding countryside.

The walk continues into a mixed woodland area before breaking out into views across Lough Erne, where Heron Island, Gay Island and Inishmakill Island can all be seen directly opposite the shoreline.

These islands and surrounding shore are important for a variety of wild birds, and are part of the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark.

The information on this walking route has been provided by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and also features on a series of walking cards which have been developed to promote walking opportunities, trails and routes within the Council district.

Please note that to help reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19, social distancing should be adhered to.
