Northern Ireland..Places to stop, take in the views.

Post by Flintlock » Sun Oct 04, 2015 3:19 pm

So, looking for a wee Autumn Winter project,so i thought i would start this thread for us locals to put in any nice wee spots you know of, both for our own use & any two-wheeled visitors from further afield.
Found this wee picnic stop this morning on the Bannanstown Road, near Leitrim Co Down

Down at Audley's Castle overlooking Strangford Lough - nice views and also a nice quiet spot.

Its a brilliant idea and fantastic photos.

Got me thinking about having a separate thread for each county with all these shots. Then when someone wants to research a county for nice places they are all there.

On a nice sunny day in winter some of these places are excellent for a day ride out and making your own brew, like the photo at the picnic stop at Bannanstown Road.

Yep, was won over by these being used by others on a recent trip-so had to get one. A great piece of kit that makes a great coffee (thumbs)
