As you look across the North Sound you can see the Coast of Connemare and the Twelve pins of Connemara. Near by the factory ruins represents an out post of Victorian industianlism [sic] in the 19th Century. One of the earliest attempts to mechanige [sic] the kelp industry was sited just here for the topography of the area makes this Aran's most favoured weed-shore. The factory was set up in 1865 by the Marine Salts Co. of Ireland for burning seaweed for kelp. The company also had a factory in Galway extracting iodine from kelp and went out of business in 1877. Today the seaweed is used by local farmers as manure or fertiliser for their potato fields. To the east lies 'loch phort Chorrúch' This is a most tranguil [sic] lake where swans, curlews, waders and all sort of birds live in peace and harmony. In Winter there are 30 to 40 whooper swans on the lake.
