The verses inscribed on the 'Fiddler's Stone' at Castle Caldwell were still legible when Alexander Hogg (1870-1939) took this photograph.
The inscription reads:
To the memory of Denis M'Cabe, Fidler 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-
'Beware ye Fidlers of ye Fidler's fate
Nor tempt ye deep lest you repent too late
Then shun ye lake till it with whiskey flows
On firm Land only - Exercise your skill
|Originally erected at the point of the Rossbeg peninsula, it was moved a couple of times before being set in its present location at the entrance to Castle Caldwell Country Park.|
