M0257 : Islands in Upper Mask Bay

Islands in Upper Mask Bay
Islands in Upper Mask Bay
For all practicable purposes, Upper Mask Bay can be considered as a lough separate from Lough Mask. Seven kilometres long and a little over one kilometre wide, it narrows to a channel only 15 metres wide where it enters the main body of Lough Mask, and there is a strong current through the channel.

This is the view of the middle reach of the "bay" which is studded with islands. From left to right can be seen Wood Island and Islandmore (both in M0157); Islandbeg (partly obscuring Islandmore behind) and Carrigeenamuck.

Beyond the lough, Bencorragh L9858 can be seen on the left with, to the right, the valley of the Finny River leading through to Loch Nafooey. The Maumtrasna massif of the Partry Mountains can be seen in the distance.
