Description At the time of Griffith's Valuation, William Johnston was leasing a house valued at £14 to Glasgon Connolly at Aghaderrard West, barony of Rosclogher. This is the house known as Mount Prospect. Both the Ordnance Survey Field Name Books and Lewis record Mount Prospect as a seat of the Connolly family in 1837. In 1894 and 1906 it was the property of St. George Robert Johnston and was also valued at £14. The remains of various buildings still exist although a new house seems to have been constructed at the site near the lake shore.
