The rounded Sperrin hills are, to most, less well known than the Mournes.They have a wilderness feel, especially with a covering of snow. Views stretching to Donegal and across most of N.I. are a reward for walking these hills

Sperrin landscapes

Sawel & Dart from Corritory Hill.
The Sperrins can bear the brunt of heavy snowstorms from the N.W. In these conditions they have a sense of remoteness and isolation.
A lonely thorn on the western slopes of Slieve Gallion, after overnight snow.
Walkers in snow-Iniscarn. Iniscarn on the eastern side of Slieve Gallion -a winter wonderland after a night of windless snow.
Carntogher on northern fringe of the Sperrins, has a good track almost to the top. Aiutumn mornings can provide spectacular lighting.
Perhaps my favourite Sperrin view, looking toward Dart and Sawel from the SW side of Crockbrack
The haunting and beautiful Glenlark valley provides opportunities for photography, especially in early morning, with glaciated features thrown into sharp relief.
Sperrins from Oughtmore-rounded hills,wet hummocky heather, spagnum and peat. Long fences and big skies are features of the Sperrins.It is not love at first sight, you learn to love them.
A zig-zag track leads to the col between Crockmore and Crockbrack. A glacial erratic ‘The Priest’s Chair’ is seen on the way up. Far to the north are Benbradagh,Binevenagh and Inishowen
Looking north from Crockmore over bog cotton,old fences and Banagher forest towards the cliffs of the north coast.
Eroded peat is a feature of Sperrin hills. Rainfall can be 80-90 ins per year, so occasional bog flows occur.
