GOVERNMENT geologists say the Vanishing Lake between Ballycastle and Cushendun could have significant tourism potential. The scientists' comments are contained in a report issued to council planners on the borough's geology and its potential affect on development.
Well-known to locals, the lake at Loughareema can drain within days even though there are no rivers flowing out. It can fill up again in hours during periods of heavy rainfall.
Described in the geologists' report as "the most notable chalk feature" in the borough, it says Loughareema has been studied extensively over recent years.
“The site and accompanying spring has the potential to be a popular tourist visitor site, but as yet, no amenities are available for this despite the main coast road running through Loughareema."
