Biddy's O'Barnes, to this day remains a stopping point for today's traveller." (From Biddys website in 2008)

The Meandering Lowerymore River flows alongside the N15 on one side and the old track on the other. The river has been seeded with unfed salmon fry. Salmon redds are now recorded by the Fisheries Board on the Upper Lowerymore River. The river banks of the Lowerymore River have been strenghtened by huge rocks, to withstand the force of the waters from the mountains — with Barnesmore Gap in Barnesmore, Donegal, Ireland.
