Strangford Lough inlet

On a little inlet on the south side of Strangford lough near Whiterock is a beautiful little set of cottages. 

 This area is so gorgeous and it makes you feel like you are miles away from anyway when you are actually only about two miles from the main road, which runs parallel to the lough between Comber and Killyleagh.

If you would like to travel along this route the best place to start is at Comber, then take the main road towards Killyleagh and Downpatrick.  About half a mile along this road past the roundabout there will be a turn off on the left and it will have a sign post for Castle Espie, which is owned by the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.  The centre has a art gallery, cafe and you came also see the birds which migrate to Northern Ireland during the winter.  Then following the signs for the bike trail continue taking most of the left turns along the route until you come back to the main road again.  

The journey usually takes about thirty mins continuously however there are plenty of stops with information posts along the and be sure to bring your camera as you will guaranteed great photo oppurtunities throughout the trip.
