Point of Interest Details

The walk continues to Stop 4 by Lake na-weela (The lake of the Seagulls) where there is some welcome seating opposite the information point! . Please do not approach the lake except by the wooden platform as the lake edges are very unstable. This landlocked lake takes its dark brooding appearance from the peat-layered bottom. Make sure to read about Sherlock Holmes's Black Dog on the back of the information point! This mythical creature gave its name to the townland where you have been walking through - Tawny-waddy-duff or the 'mountain field of the black dog'. The walk continues along the gravel road where you will eventually come to a T junction. Keep left (following the green arrows) to come to the final two stops. The red arrows are for the longer 16km Moy-gown-agh walk, of which Blane-more forest is just a part thereof..
