Part of the Marble Arch Geopark, situated on a small man-made island or crannog Clough Oughter Castle stands like a silent sentinel, watching over its beautiful Lakeland surroundings. Fought for and controlled by warring Irish families, Cromwell's forces and the Anglo-Norman William de Lacy through the centuries, this enigmatic and imposing structure stands testament to the enduring Irish spirit.​
