Topped Mountain

(0 reviews)

Topped Mountain, standing at only 277metres is technically a hill, however, a short, sharp climb from the car park leads to the summit which provides extensive 360 degree vistas over Upper and Lower Lough Erne and the west of the province. On a clear day the Sperrins can be seen to the north, Clogher Valley to the east and all of Fermanagh lies before you to the west. On the summit you will find a ‘trig’ point and an ancient cairn. The ancient cairn is a protected monument while the trig point was originally erected by Ordnance Survey to assist with the remapping of Britain.
