    Muckross Lake is also known as the Middle Lake (the other two being Lough Leane and Upper Lake), or the Torc, for its proximity to Torc Mountain. It is Ireland's deepest lake at 75 meters maximum depth. Legend has it that it is inhabited by a monstrous eel. As said eel has not been defeated by a saint as yet, it must be harmless. Trout and salmon fishing are legal in the lake.
