Lovely drive, very beautiful as there was some snow capped mountains in the background. The Glencar waterfall is well worth a visit.

Few words can describe the beauty of this location. We visited on a crisp, bright November day. Seldom have I experienced such beautiful scenery. Totally recommend a visit.

Glencar Lake is exactly as described. It's a lake. Is has water; it has some boats; it has some water plants; it has some lovely mountains as backdrops; it has some nearby waterfalls. In the end, though, it's a lake.
