Strangford Lough AONB

Strangford Lough is an almost landlocked inlet of the sea set within a diverse lowland topography. Within the lough, tips of drowned drumlin hills create a spectacular myriad of islands, while, on shore, the hills form a pleasant rolling landscape.

At the northern end of the lough, Scrabo Hill and tower form a prominent landscape feature which can be seen from miles around. The lough is of international importance for wintering wildfowl, while the shores, woodland, meadows, streams and marshes, together with the well tended farmland provide landscape diversity and great nature conservation interest.
