Tir N’an Og
The family burial ground which overlooks the lake.
Legend says the white stag takes humans to Tir N’an Og, ‘the land of the everyoung'
Red squirrels are on the decline in Northern Ireland but we have a healthy population of them.
Lake walk and highlights...
A leisurely walk around the lake should take around 45 minutes. The colours around the lake change as each season passes and it is an ideal location to take photos. Remember to look out for the swans and other wildlife that inhabit the area.
The Pony Wood
The area known as the Pony Wood can be found just before reaching the lake at Mount Stewart and is a memorial to the horses which spent their lives on the estate.
The Fitzroya Tree
Fitzroya Cupressoides is a native tree of Chile, and one of the oldest living trees in the world. This specimen was given to Mount Stewart in 2005 by the Met Office.
