Loughareema (Loch an Rith Amach)

(Vanishing Lake)
The water does disappear and reappear within hours.

Lying just a few miles from Ballycastle ,Loughareema is surrounded by unspoiled, uninhabited, heather covered hills. It would appear as just a normal lough but if you care to go away for a while upon your return you find it has completely vanished, but be careful you could end up stranded as the water does on a regular basis cover the main road. Only a  few inches I might add but enough to make it seem as if someone built two walls into a lough, it's a pretty cool site to see!!!
In October 1898 the lough claimed the lives of Colonel Jack McNeill and his coachman.
