This is a great walk and though a little steep, the views from the top are more than worth it. We sampled local breakfast in Strangford first, which was delicious, then walked it off here. Monument is impressive. Lovely part of the world.

I visit here every time I come to see my family in Saul. Views from the top are lovely - we had our wedding pics here. If you come during Easter come for the dawn mass 500+ people last year, just magical.
