    Tully Bog is an isolated lowland raised bog lying in a shallow hollow within the former flood-plain of the Fairy Water River. The central intact dome is fairly well developed and supports a small pool system with a good hummock and hollow development on the bog plain. The centre of the bog has a small raised drumlin, with birch woodland growing on it. The rare bog-mosses Sphagnum imbricatum and S. fuscum are present.
