Scrabo Tower Newtownards

It’s not just tourists who have the pleasure of discovering historical sites around Northern Ireland. Anyone can pick themselves up and take them and whoever they like to the calming area of the west of Newtownards. Here an older pinnacle of County Down stands. It is of course Scrabo Tower.

Set in the appropriately titled Scrabo Tower Park, you’ll soon be glad you took the time to get to it. It’s not just an old building you can waltz around. From its point you can get yourself a beautiful view of Strangford Lough – picturesque during any time of year, with its countryside surroundings. A nature lover could spend hours admiring the view. However, if you don’t have hours, there’s a twelve minute long audio-visual show to help guests discover more of the site that they’re no doubt bound to fall in love with.

We all need some quiet time with family or friends or even alone. The disused sandstone quarries provide just that. As well as the chance to spend time in the Killynether Wood. How else are you to enjoy a route that brings you away from it all?

And sometimes, if you’re lucky, you might get to see the odd person sliding down it. The tower seems to be a popular instrument for charitable abseiling down.
