The little treed island in the lake is known as a crannog — a man-made island created during Medieval times as a sort of  “panic room” for area residents to evade marauding bandits.

Ruins of an old castle are located on the crannog, which is accessible only by boat.

In addition to its history, Lake Knockalough is recognized as a popular fishing hole for brown and rainbow trout.

The fishing must be good, as many swans and seabirds call the lake home.
