At the weekend me and my trusted companion - Dudley, went on a 10 mile hike from home - here at Balmoral up to Helen's Tower and back!
Since my last visit some months ago it, had been cleaned up and a car park added. It appears from the sign that you can now hire the tower to stay in - spooky!
As you can see it is a beautiful place to visit, secluded and private with wonderful views over Belfast Lough and Craigantlet Hills. If you live in the vicinity of Ards / North Down and you haven't visited the tower please take the time and visit - you will be delighted.
