Scrabo Tower sits proudly on a rocky hill overlooking Strangford Lough and the town of Newtownards. It was completed in 1857 in memory of the 3rd Marquis of Londonderry and designed by Charles Lanyon, the same architect of Queen's University Belfast.
The tower ended up being smaller than originally planned due to spiralling building costs.
Below is the view towards Belfast, in the middle of the photo, and a golf course is directly below the tower.
This is the wonderful view over Strangford and Newtownards, the airstrip just visible.
