Scrabo Tower


A gorgeous Sunday morning so we drove the few miles out to Scrabo Tower for a walk. The tower is built on a high volcanic plug and commemorates the 3rd Marquess of Londonderry (who was one of the Duke of Wellington's Generals at Waterloo). It is a really steep climb up to the tower, but well worth it for the great views over Belfast and much of County Down, including Strangford Lough (see small photos).

gorgeous views from a rather imposing, but quite interesting tower.

Thanks for your comments. The view is great from the tower - well worth the sore legs!

Hi Blueboat,

not sure if I've been here previously, but the views seen in the small pictures are superb when you open up the full picture. Thanks for sharing them.
