CASTLE CALDWELL FOREST
Make for Kesh on the B82 then take the A47. About 8 km from Belleek turn left into the Castle Caldwell Forest where there is a car park and picnic facilities. The site is an important conservation forest with bird sanctuaries and visiting red deer.
Two main features are the Old Castle and Lough Shore Jetty from where barges once plied the lough. The fiddler’s stone which stands at the main entrance bears this inscription: “To the memory of Denis McCabe, fiddler who fell out of the St Patrick Barge belonging to Sir James Caldwell Bart and Count of Milan, and was drowned off this point Aug. 15, 1770.”
