Kinlough House was originally called Oakfield House and it was the seat of the Johnston family from the early 18th century. It was remodeled by Robert Johnston around the 1820s and renamed as Kinlough House. The basic shape of the house is still evident but the roof, floors and ceilings have long since disappeared. However, there are still tiles clinging to a piece of plaster behind some vegetation (see picture 12) and also evidence (just about) of a floor in one of the rooms.
The current owner of the house mentioned that there is an underground tunnel from the basement to the outbuildings, which are currently occupied by cows. There is a fine view of the mountains in the distance from the front door.
