The Sperrins

Silverbirch Hotel located in the heart of Co. Tyrone is the ideal to explore one of Northern Ireland’s premier eco-tourism destinations, with rivers teaming with life, mountains, valleys, forests, lakes and outdoor pursuits.

With sparse highlands and lush river valleys, the Sperrins have a special charm, especially for walkers.

Quality walks include the Robber’s Table near Gortin, which passes the site where supposed 17th century highwaymen met to divide their spoils after raiding postal carriages.

Other great views include the Owenkillew Valley and Butterlope Glen – fellow glacial landscapes and from Pigeon Top Mountain near Omagh, Mullaghcarn which rises above Gortin Glen Forest Park and Bolaght Mountain near Castlederg.
