Unusual lake which is directly linked to the sea and is tidal. I think the tide comes in for hours but takes eight hours to retreat. The loch is beautiful and is also a recommended swimming spot. There's an exhibition about the rare or unusual habitat of the loch in the skibberean heritage centre in the town.
You can walk up the forest hill to a vantage point that gives great views all around. The walk itself is gorgeous. As a foreigner you expect gnomes of fairies to live here. It is a walk with some steep climbing up stairs but well worth it. Shame there is no pub or coffee house around.
