At 50 miles in length, Lough Erne is the largest of the cluster of lochs that makes up the Lake District of Fermanagh in Ulster. The Erne is essentially two lakes: the Upper and Lower lochs are joined by a small river, five miles in length, on the banks of which stand the county town of Enniskillen. There are over forty small islands in Loch Erne. The varied landscape of forests, sandy bays, cliffs and reed beds that surrounds the loch makes the area very beautiful.
