The Gap and Lough Talt are in a narrow mountain pass on the
Mayo/Sligo border, between Tubbercurry and Ballina.
The pass is also known as the 'Windy Gap'
Lough Talt is about one mile by a half mile wide, 500ft. Above
sea level and lies directly at the foot of the Crummus. (1,300ft.)
Lough Talt is, without doubt, one of the most picturesque lakes
in Ireland. Lough Talts colours and shadows are ever changing.
There are a number of nature trails ( signposted & mapped )
through the rugged terrain but one can view the magnificent
scenery from the road. I know, visitors will not regret or
forget a drive through The Windy Gap!
