Loughermore Forest

Baranailt Road Claudy, Londonderry

Loughermore Forest lies in the upland area between Claudy and Limavady. The forest covers nearly 1400 hectares. The landscape was once very different here, being at such a height this is a place full of neolithic monuments including wedge tombs, barrows, stone circles, and ring marked stones.

There are no formal trails in the forest. Visitors are welcome to explore the whole site which crosses over a few different roads. The forest blocks skirts the North Sperrins Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From the higher points of the forest there are extensive views over Lough Foyle and the Donegal hills.

The current main species are sitka spruce and lodgepole pine. There are also many corridors of mixed broadleaves to break up the conifer blocks and provide a hardwood habitat for fauna and flora.



From Main Street in Claudy turn onto the Baranailt Road. Continue across the staggered junction at the Foreglen Road. After crossing the concrete Loughermore Bridge the forest car park is immediately on the left.

From Limavady follow signs for Claudy. The forest car park is on the right after the junction of the Slaghtmanus Road with the Baranailt Road.
