Welcome to Altarichard, located within the Slieveanorra and Croaghan Area of Special Scientific Interest (ASSI).
Altarichard is one of only a few accessible upland blanket bogs in Northern Ireland. Due to its peatland flora and associated fauna, the designated bog is an important habitat for upland birds, particularly merlin (Falco columbarius) and the hen harrier (Circus cyaneus). Both of these species currently breed in adjoining areas and use the open bogland for foraging.
Walkers can enjoy two challenging hill walks, way-marked from Altarichard and forming part of the scenic route between Magherahoney and Cushendall. These two circular upland routes, the Breen Forest Walk and The Milibern, taking in the summit at Croaghan, both provide remoteness, solitude and characteristically wild yet beautiful scenery.
