Nestled in the middle of the sperrins Gortin Glen forest park is a very peaceful but beautiful spot. The deer on site are friendly ... except during the rut when it's wise to give them their space some beautiful walks and superb spot for a picnic love this place

This is the most wonderful place to walk the dog or take the kids. The paths are well maintained and the scenery is outstanding. It so so peaceful. Just right to clear away the cobwebs.

Great place for anyone who loves forest walks, the smell of Pine needles, waterfalls, raindeer, and some fantastic views. There are different walks per ability and a drive up the through the hills with plenty of places to stop and admire the scenery. There are plenty of picnic tables and a large pond with ducks and other wildfowl. £3 charge... More

Beautiful walks with amazing waterfall views! Some parts of the walks can be challenging so appropriate footwear is a must. Its all worth it for the stunning views and the deer!
