Castle Caldwell

Castle Caldwell Forest can be found past Belleek on the Omagh Road. Castle Caldwell Forest is a 200 hectare mixed broad-leaf and coniferous lowland forest located on a peninsular along the northern shores of Lower Lough Erne. Castle Caldwell is an outstanding site, both for its  peninsular position on the shores of Lower Lough Erne and also for the remnants of the estate itself. The name of the castle actually comes from James Caldwell, an Enniskillen merchant who purchased the estate in 1662. Castle Caldwell is located 5 miles from the town of Belleek. A series of forest tracks traverse through this ancient woodland area, where views are dominated by the Castle ruins and rugged shoreline. It belongs to the Marble Arch Geopark.
