Lough Shannagh from Doan
A view of Lough Shannagh from Doan. Carn Mountain and Slieve Muck rise behind. The lough is "the largest body of water in the Mourne Mountains that is not man made. Ten thousand years ago, long after ice had disappeared from the lowlands, many patches remained in hollows high in the hills. Located at 390m in a wilderness area of the Mournes, the deep blue waters of Lough Shannagh occupy a corrie at the foot of Carn Mountain. Surrounded by a ring of deeply carved peaks, Lough Shannagh rests on a high plateau (peneplain)" (from LinkExternal link [June 2015]). It has been altered slightly at some point to act as a feeder reservoir for the Silent Valley - a small dam wall and overflow has been created at the north-eastern end J2926 : The outflow of Lough Shannagh.
