Our next walk is to the Cliffs of Magho on Saturday October 29th

This is a 4 hour circular route which includes an ascent (path & steps) to Lough Navar View Point, great views of Lower Lough Erne, Slieve League & the Bluestack Mountains, followed by a walk through forest, track and road.  Bring gaiters.

Aghanaglack Walk.

Nineteen members of the West Tyrone Ramblers travelled to Fermanagh, to Ballintempo Forest on Saturday past. Aghanaglack is part of the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark.

The weather was cloudy to start with and soon turned to light rain and later to heavy rain, clearing up at midday after the lunch break. It was a circular walk mainly on forest track. The area is steeped in geology, local myths and wildlife, so there was something for everyone. Leaving the car park the walkers followed the track to Aghanaglack Double Court Tomb. The group leader gave some information about the tomb, it is on an elevated site amongst the conifers, it was constructed when there were fewer surrounding trees, allowing for spectacular views across the surrounding countryside. It was excavated in 1938, in its original state the tomb was roofed with large stones and then covered with stones and possibly clay. The twin galleries of the tomb are aligned east-west and it was disturbed by previous excavation, some of the stones being used for farm buildings. The tomb was found to contain Bronze Age and Stone Age items, pots, arrowheads and the remains of two children. Some of the items can be found on display at Fermanagh Co. Museum. The ramblers then moved on past the reedy shoreline of Lough Blockent towards an area commonly called Brimstone Rock, once used as a mass rock during the 17th Century when Catholic worship was declared illegal.

Walking along the track on top of escarpment, in the heavy rain the group found a spot in the forest to have lunch, the trees providing limited shelter. After lunch the walkers continued following the track, with the rained stopped and the appearance of blue sky,there were glimpses of Cuilcagh Mountain, Fermanagh's highest mountain, with its distinctive plateau-shape and stepped profile. The landscape began to change from forest to open moorland and blanket bog. The walkers observed the construction site for Ora More Wind Farm, the building of the giant turbines, their towers rising from the bog and the enormous crane used to lift the turbine and blades into position. During the summer the turf cutters had been busy cutting turf on the blanket bog, an age old tradition on the island of Ireland, the old and new energy source side by side. After four hours and eight miles the ramblers returned to the car park after a very enjoyable walk despite the wet start.
