Guess what? Another townland called Balloo. That makes three so far. Today’s townland is Balloo Lower, on the coast east of Groomsport. The Lower Balloo Road goes up and down over drumlins (and yes that’s a distant view of Scrabo tower).
Reaching the shore at Groomsport, the townland of Balloo Lower doesn’t go into the village, but instead extends across quiet bays and the Windsor Holiday park, with easy access for walkers along the North Down Coastal Path.
I could see the Copeland Island bird observatory further out to sea, so I looked around for birds and found a curlew….
