The land surrounding Upper Lough Erne is diverse, consisting of lush pasture, dispersed woodland and slightly further afield, mountain and bog waiting to be explored by bicycle and on foot. A must see is the 2,000-acre Crom estate, consisting ancient woodland, landscaped gardens, castle ruins and the Great Yew, considered one of the finest trees in Britain and Ireland. Crom is one of Ireland’s most important nature conservation areas with wild deer, pine marten, red squirrels and all eight species of native bats. The estate is managed by the National Trust and lies less than 3 miles as the crow flies from Derryadd Quay. The unique limestone geology of County Fermanagh has given rise to two extensive cave systems under Cuilagh Mountain and the Tullybrack-Belmoer Uplands. Most of the systems are only accessible to experienced cavers however Cuilagh Mountain is home to the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark, one of Europe’s finest show caves. A journey some 50 miles to the west will take you to the Donegal coastline with is fine sandy beaches, rocky coves and majestic cliffs.
