Long-distance cycle map for the Strangford Lough Trail using NCN 99

The Strangford Lough Trail is an 82-mile circular route in and around Strangford Lough, an area of outstanding natural beauty in County Down, Northern Ireland.

The trail travels through a variety of landscapes along quiet country roads, with some traffic-free sections. The route travels through Portavogie and past the National Trust protected village of Kearney before reaching Portaferry. After a short ferry crossing to Strangford village, the trail continues through Castle Ward estate. The trail runs to Downpatrick before heading up the western shore of the Lough to Newtownards via Scrabo, where rewarding panoramic views of the Lough await. 

This full-colour map based on Ordnance Survey data shows clearly mapped cycle routes on traffic-free paths, quiet lanes and roads, with easy-to-read contours and route profiles. Also features inset maps for the major towns and cities and linking routes that could be ridden for day excursions, as well as other cycle routes in County Down.
