I stopped at the pub just down the road and walked back to take in the view. Even on a dull day the view was atmospheric and worth the stop.

There is no more of a stunning view than when you stand at the side of the lake. The area is popular with tourists, hikers and fishermen as well as those who wish to sample the fabulous food at Tynycornel with views over the lake

In Mach Loop so aircraft perform low level flying overhead. Quite narrow roads so drive carefully. Stop at Tyny Cornel hotel at end of lake for great views and tea.
