Natural lakes are unfortunately a rapidly disappearing feature of the Mournes. Peat Bog succession has succeeded in filling in Blue Lough between Bearnagh and Doan and Cove Lough is today very quickly disappearing into the reeds. David Kirk correctly states that only two of these natural lakes worthy of the name remain, Binnian Lough on the high platform above the Douglas Crag and Blue Lough on the shoulder between Binnian and Lamagan in the valley below. Being at the head of one of the busier Mourne thoroughfares probably contributes somewhat to the continued survival of this waterhole against the onset of Peat succession. Or just maybe, as the picture shows, as sentinal's like Rocky Mountain keep a close eye from across the Annalong Valley it has no option but to stay put!!
