Visit to Ballylough, Bushmills

11th August 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

£10.00 – £12.00

Ballylough is a historic site which tells a story of the people who lived and worked there through the centuries.  There is Crannog on the lake which is thought to be have been built 7000 years ago.  There is also a rath and a lost castle underneath existing MacQuillan ruins.  It is possible that this castle is one of the Savages castles built about 1275.

In 1798 the Rev Anthony Trail bought Ballylough and Ballintoy houses and lands from the Stewart family, who had been in situ as land agents for the MacDonnells.  Several changes were made to the house and lands at the time.  Ballintoy was sold along with most of the lands over the years. Today June and David Traill have embarked on an exciting journey of research and restoration, to protect the buildings, flora and fauna on site.

Tour of house and grounds. Tea/coffee and scones provided.  Please wear suitable all weather clothing for a walking tour of the grounds. Meeting at Ballylough.
