Cranny Bogs is made up of three inter-drumlin, lowland raised bogs - Fallaghearn Bog, Killymoonan Bog and Cavan Bog. They are typical of western bogs within the drumlin belt of Northern Ireland, being elongated and/or very irregular in shape. Generally, dome structure is poorly defined.
The two eastern bogs are linked together around a small drumlin, the third lies to the south-west but in close proximity. The bogs vary considerably in their microtopography, with Fallaghearn in particular displaying relatively well-developed hummock (including Sphagnum imbricatum and S. fuscum) and lawn complexes. Hummocks on Killymoonan and Cavan Bogs are generally more subdued. Shallow, temporary pools are scattered over the three bogs.
