Marvelous Tawnyard Lough
Tawnyard Lough is very remote lake in the Sheefrey Mountains to the east of Delphi Lodge. It is a wild, windswept location surrounded by several mountains and fed by numerous mountain streams.
The lands surrounding Tawnyard are mainly saturated boglands and are designated a special area of conservation. This unique acidic soil type is home to a large variety of plant and animal species that warrant the protection it receives.
The waters of Tawnyard drain eventually to the River Erriff, which having initially flowed east, take a major change in direction to flow westward and into the Killary fjord, hence the Atlantic.
It is a very beautiful lake with a hand full of small islands, the largest of which is an intact ancient woodland. Excellent for fishing both trout and salmon – Delphi Lodge has a boat available for guests.
Tawnyard Lough is solitude at its best, in a truly dramatic landscape.
