N2993 : North end of Lough Gowna

taken 12 years ago, 3 km from Scrabby, Ireland

North end of Lough Gowna
North end of Lough Gowna
Lough Gowna is one of the largest loughs in the Irish lakeland, and is divided between Counties Longford and Cavan. The lough which extends to 728 hectares in area is of extremely convoluted outline, consisting as it does of drowned drumlin country. The River Erne enters and leaves the eastern tip of the Lough. The waters of the lough offer prime coarse angling.

One of the northernmost arms of the Lough can be seen in the middle distance, looking down from the hilly back road between Arvagh and Gowna village. The hills of central Leitrim can be seen in the distance.
