B173 Cloughey - Kircubbin
Rubane

The B173 crosses the Ards Peninsula towards its southern tip. The road was originally unclassified but presumably gained its number in the late 1920s.

The road starts on the A2 coast road in Cloughey, although the sea is not visible here, and heads northwest along Kircubbin Road. There are houses to the right and a golf course to the left; part of an old windmill can be seen on a mound near the road. We soon enter open country and follow a straight road across flat land past the Kirkistown motor racing circuit.

The road then starts to become more winding as it continues across more undulating terrain. We soon go through Rubane and then descend towards Strangford Lough. The road ends within sight of the water at a T-junction on the A20.
