Untapped Ulster Tourist’s
Thankfully someone somewhere, had the brains to start to exploit the rich Ulster Scots history that lies within the Ards and North Down Area.
I blogged recently regarding the Ulster Scots tourist trail information at Ards Tourist Centre, which I believe has moved to our neighbours at North Down Museum.
Yesterday, whilst visiting the Mount Stewart Garden and craft fair, looked around quite a number of stalls and exhibitors – Ards Borough Council had a tourist stall set up with complete with pop up stands and leaflets. I picked up these two booklets relating to Ulster Scots tourist trail, the lady working at the stall was not too chatty - but I did glean from her that the two booklets I had lifted had ‘been the most popular today’
So there you go, a keen interest from the National Trust type folk – Oh yes, I am a member!!
