Ulster Way A 625 mile (1000km) circular walking route in Northern Ireland

Lough Bradan to Gortin

This section boasts some of the most extensive views on the entire Ulster Way as it journeys from the westernmost reaches of County Tyrone into the foothills of the Sperrin Mountains. At 37 miles it will be too long for most walkers to contemplate tackling in a single day, but it can be broken down into several more manageable stages, each with its own individual character and scenery.
