GALLERY: The new boardwalk on Cuilcagh Mountain looks absolutely incredible!

CUILCAGH MOUNTAIN is one of the county’s finest natural offerings – and it just got even better.

In recent weeks, work on a major boardwalk was completed at the mountain which is siutated on the Fermanagh/Cavan border.

At 665 metres (2,182 ft) above sea level, it is the highest point in both Fermanagh and Cavan.

The funding was secured by Fermanagh District Council and the work was carried out by Alexander Civil Engineering.

The company’s website states:


“This project was undertaken in the Cuilcagh Mountain Park. The area is designated under the Ramsar Convention as a wetland of international importance and is also designated under European environmental legislation as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC), an Area of Special Scientific Interest (ASSI) and a Natura 2000 site.”

Works included:
* 1.6km of raised wooden boardwalk
* 2 timber bridges
* 120 stepped sections leading to main mountain staircase
* Mountain staircase with 450 steps over 36 flights
* Work in blanket bog terrain
* Strict environmental controls
