"There is a lake called Lough Derg in County Donegal which has acquired extraordinary fame both in Christian history and in general literature. Natural beauty, however, does not account for that renown, as austerity is the character of the scene. Situated in the south-eastern tip of the county, this expanse of water is not even enhanced by nearness to the celebrated coast-line. The lake is extensive, six miles by four miles in area, and surrounded by low, heather-clad mountains, mostly unrelieved by either trees or cultivation, unremarkable in contour, forming a landscape that is usually a monotonous monochrome of either brown or grey tints. There is nothing to allure the eye here and no scenery in the accepted sense."
