Description

View of Gougane Lake with a clump of trees on a small island and mountain peaks in the background. The place is described as follows by the authors:

A sudden turning in the road brings the Tourist within view, and almost over, the lake of Gougane Barra. A scene of more utter loneliness, stern grandeur, or savage magnificence, it is difficult to conceive; redeemed, however, as all things savage are, by one passage of gentle and inviting beauty, upon which the eye turns as to a springwell in the desert—the little island with its group of graceful ash-trees and ruined chapel.
