Favour Royal Forest
Favour Royal Forest is mainly made up of coniferous forest blocks that lie close to the main Augher and Aughnacloy roads.
The Ulster Way passes through this forest. There are several other waymarked trails. There are two car parks for visitors to Favour Royal and Altadavin.
There is also a wild flower meadow and deer lawn, which can be accessed from the Favour Royal car park. Altadavin car park is beside St Patrick’s Chair, a gigantic Druid stone, and St Brigid’s Well which is credited with healing powers.
There may be restrictions on access to parts of the forest from time to time due to forest operations so pay attention to safety signage.
