Gortin lies ten miles north of Omagh in the valley of the Owenkillew River, overlooked by the Sperrin moutains. Gortin is a small picturesque village nestling in the Owenkillew river valley. The village is an ideal starting point for exploring the surrounding hills and glens by bike or on foot, as well as offering welcoming hostelries to unwind after a day’s exercise.

Its population of around 226 people lives in a village heavily dependent on agriculture for its economy, but the village is also developing the tourism potential of this area of rugged beauty and tranquillity. Tourist attractions in the area include the Gortin Glen Forest Park.
