Tyrone & Sperrins

The largely rural Counties of Tyrone and Londonderry are dominated by the heather-clad slopes of the Sperrins Mountains, Northern Ireland’s largest and least explored mountain range.  In this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you are off the beaten track and may not encounter another person for miles.  The pace of life is slower here, so relax and let the region slowly reveal itself.
