J5667 : Mid Island, Strangford Lough - May 2017(1)

Mid Island, Strangford Lough - May 2017(1)
Mid Island, Strangford Lough - May 2017(1)
A partly-wooded island, under the control of the National Trust, seen from the Portaferry road, Greyabbey. See also J5767 : Towards Mid Island, Strangford Lough (November 2008).
“The National Trust allows free public access to Mid Island and the neighbouring South Island, so you are welcome to go for a visit and explore. At low tide, you can walk across the sand from the National Trust car park in Greyabbey. The sand is quite firm in this area, so there is no risk of getting stuck. But there are often deep puddles so Wellington boots are recommended. Visitors should be aware that cattle are often grazing these islands so we would ask you to close the gates, respect the livestock and keep your dogs under control.”.
The above should not be read as an invitation to trespass. I have no information or knowledge about whether there is a public path or right of way to the island. J5667 : Mid Island, Strangford Lough - May 2017(2) shows the southern end.
