At the foot of the Bluestack mountains, discover the abundance of flora, fauna, and history around the lough. Starting off at Lough Eske Castle by the banks of Lough Eske and at the base of the magnificent Bluestack mountains, this leisurely nature guide meanders by the shore before rising gently to give you a panoramic view of the area right across to county Tyrone. Some of the treats you can expect to find on your short jaunt are the (possible) sighting of golden eagles, Californian redwoods, red deer, blue hare, and every sort of flora from marsh marigolds to cuckoo flowers, meadowsweet to umbellifers. You're in a place of immense beauty and fresh air where lichen grows freely as it does where air is truly fresh and where everyone from Fionn McCumhail to friars, gentry to bandits have visited and savored.
