Scrabo Tower Down

Scrabo Tower dominates the skyline around North Down and overlooks Newtownards. With breathtaking views across Strangford Lough and across to Scotland, on a good day, it is well worth a visit and it is only a short walk up from the car park.

Build with local stone, ‘Scrabo’ has 122 steps to the viewing platform. Scrabo is supposedly the Gaelic word for cow pasture;did you know that?

Living close to Scrabo Tower it was an easy choice to make it into Silver and Gold Hallmarked Jewellery as part of our ‘Mi-NI’ Jewellery Collection.

We are making the Northern Ireland natural landmarks and architecture into jewellery so that people can wear their memories or send them overseas as a ‘Wee piece O’Home’ to relatives and friends.
