Visited Blue Lake twice on adventurous training expeditions. The first time we were encouraged to jump in-i wouldn't recommend unless you like the idea of your heart nearly stopping with cold shock!
Absolutely beautiful and stunning, the views from the hilltops around it are also amazing.
If you're in the area, make a big effort to discover this hidden gem.

This lake is in a quarry near Fairbourne and the water in it is a vivid blue. Its quite hard to find and so easy to miss. Its not far up a steep track you take and off to the right . You would have to look up the location on a map as I don't believe there are any signs. I once met someone who said he threw a stone in it and was shocked when it flew back out of the water again!!!

A bit of a climb, and as it's not signposted it's easy to miss, but it's certainly worth the effort to find it.

This is a remarkable hidden gem! A beautiful place to explore on a summers day - the water is so blue it looks unreal.
