Delamont Long Walk
Walked this route on a warm sunny Spring morning and would recommend it for anyone living in Northern Ireland and tourists.
The paths are well maintained although there there are a few hills that may cause some difficulty for those with limited mobility.
There is a wide variety of wildlife and the views of Strangford Lough very nice.
Car parking fees were only £4.00 for the day in early 2021 and I saw no dog fouling and minimal litter.
