Scouts Exploration of North Down Coast

This weekend a group of scouts completed their exploration of the North Down Coastal Path and Bangor as part of their expedition challenge badge.
After a final briefing at the scout hall it was off to the train station.

They travelled to Belfast Central, then changed to the Bangor line and disembarked at Holywood.  The weather was fine as they headed off along the coastal path to their first stop, five and a half miles away at Grey Point Fort.


After exploring the fort and surrounding area, it was time to head on to Crawfordsburn Scout centre, to set up camp and cook dinner.


After tea (ball games and card games) they decided to head to Crawfordsburn beach for some chill out time.

Day two and the rain came.  After sausage baps and breaking camp, the rain faired and they continued along the coastal path to Bangor.  They spent some time exploring Pickie park and the harbour before treating themselves to a Burger King lunch (topping up their £3 meal allowance to really spoil themselves). Well deserved!
Final journey by train from Bangor to Ballymoney.

Well done to all! Looking forward to reading the reports 😀
