The pretty village of Kinlough, is on the northern shore of Lough Melvin.
Celebrated for its salmon and trout fishing, Lough Melvin has several small islands, on one of which are the ruins of Rossclogher Castle. On the mainland near by is the ruined Rossclogher Abbey. A captain in the Spanish Armada named De Cuellar is said to have taken refuge in the castle after being wrecked on the Sligo coast.
