This track at the northern end of Glenbeg Lough provides easy access for an ascent of Lackawee, clearly visible on this beautiful day in May. There is also enough space at this point to park several cars. The gated track leads to some sort of official looking building which appears to be related to the lake in some way (water monitoring/fisheries/ who knows?) but was unmanned when we passed. Just beyond the building, access to the lower slopes of Lackawee is easy and on a day like the one we enjoyed, the view back down to Glenbeg Lough was stunning.
