    The Ulster-Scots and the Ards Peninsula

    On the most easterly shores of Ulster, with easy sea travel, the Ards Peninsula has long been a place of human settlement.  The first inhabitants were Stone Age hunter-gatherers; later Scrabo Hill was occupied in the Bronze Age between 2000 and 300 BC.  Christianity took root in 545AD when St Finian founded a monastery named "Movilla" which was subsequently destroyed by the Vikings sometime after 824AD.
