Lake on Eany Beg River not on OS Discovery Series Sheet 11
by bryanmccabe  19 Feb 2012
Having completed a walk taking in Croaghgorm, Lavagh More, Lavagh Beg and Silver Hill on 19th Feb 2012, I feel it is worth reiterating a comment made by gerrym in his post of 3 Jun 2005. In the valley south of Silver Hill, the Eany Beg River is dammed to form a sizeable lake which does not appear on the OS Discovery Series Sheet 11 that I purchased in early 2010. I also checked on http://maps.osi.ie - the lake appears on the "Street Map", but not on the "Wind Report" (the latter is the Discovery Series equivalent). The links are provided below. I draw attention to this as the Bluestacks is a remote mountain range, intimidating in poor visibility. Hikers could do without the added confusion of unexpected geographical features!

Wind Report: http://maps.osi.ie/publicviewer/#V1,590374 A,890234 B,6,1

(P.S. Point A and Point B appear in the text of the link on the as-published version of this post, you will need to delete these before the links will work. Simon - you may be able to amend?) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/278/comment/6691/
