Trannish Island Bothy is a stop on the Lough Erne Canoe Trail

The Bothy is located on the Western side of Trannish Island (OS Lough Erne Activity Map GR H323292), to the north side of the totem pole. The landing point is at the end of the short channel and is shallow at both sides. There is currently no pontoon, however small boats can land and be hauled up onto the beach, clear of the water and tied down.
