Taking your dog for a walk is one of life’s greatest treasures, why not combine this with a guided tour of Scrabo Hill and picnic?
The walk takes in the summit of Scrabo Hill and the famous Scrabo Tower built in 1857, one of Northern Ireland's best-known landmarks. Enjoy a delicious picnic box while taking in the stunning views over Strangford Lough and North Down. The walk then descends to a vantage point of the disused quarries. The old quarries have major geological importance and have been designated an Area of Special Scientific Interest.
Each dog will receive a bandana. The picnic box is included in the price (you will receive a brioche filled roll, fruit, yogurt, tray bake and bottle of water). Please make event organisers aware of any dietary requirements by 24 July 2021 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

All dogs must be kept on lead during the tour. A good level of fitness and walking shoes are advised due to steep inclines and uneven ground.
Enjoy the wide-open spaces, charming towns and captivating history of Ards and North Down on a guided walking tour.
From June to August you can explore the region with historic town and coastal walks, have a go at bird watching, or keep the kids entertained during the summer with an interactive nature trail. There is something for everyone, even four-legged friends!
