Strangford Castle

Map Reference: J589498 (3589, 3498)

Strangford Castle was probably originally built in the 15th century but most of the present building dates from the late 16th century. It is a small three-storey tower with no vault or stone stairway.

The present entrance, in the NE wall, is protected by a machicolation. The original entrance may have been at the first floor. The ground floor chamber is lit only by small gun-loops. The roof has very fine crenellations.
