Cranny Bogs are privately owned and are not open to public access
Cranny Bogs SAC encompasses three active raised bogs 5 miles south of Omagh in Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland. The bogs are elongated and irregular in shape, and vary considerably regarding their surface features such as pools and hummocks. Various species of Sphagnum moss are found across this SAC, along with Bog cranberry.
The surrounding land usage is dominated by grazing and silage, and there is an extensive history of hand cutting peat in the area. This cutting of peat has encroached significantly on the intact bog surfaces; the cut face of the peat can be up to 2.5m high in some places. The damage caused by burning is also very evident.
