Description of Trail

Turbet Island is home to an Anglo-Norman motte and bailey. It was located at an ideal crossing point in the River Erne and was probably the first major settlement in the town of Belturbet. The River Erne and its associated loughs are now home to more passive residents hosting a great diversity of protected bird species including the Whooper Swan and the Greenland White-Fronted Goose.
