No 'night fever' here...quiet stroll
by Fergalh  24 Jul 2023
Parked at 507499 starA at the bottom of island road where there is parking for around six cars. Walked through gate and over causeway to the island. There are numerous scots pines on the small height on the centre. Walked around to the southside and than up through the small track to the high point. Nice views of Strangford lough from island which is owned by the national trust Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2086/comment/24010/
