Ards and North Down has a rich history of Ulster-Scots heritage

Ards and North Down has a rich history of Ulster-Scots heritage with “the Founding Fathers of the Ulster-Scots”, James Hamilton and Hugh Montgomery arriving in the Ards and North Down in May 1606.

This marked the beginning of what would see a flood of thousands of Scottish tenants who were to transform the area forever.
