Built in 1875, Lorne still retains much of its original character. It was the home of Henry Campbell, a prominent linen merchant, who names the estate after the hereditary home of the Campbell clan in Scotland. Purchased by Girlguiding Ulster in 1946 it is now an upgraded, modernised residential venue with access throughout for those with special needs.
Located in an enviable position, just 6 miles from Belfast, Lorne’s ease of access by car or public transport is a unique benefit. Once you have entered the gates of Lorne you are transported to a quiet, safe environment where you can truly relax and enjoy the surroundings. A short stroll will take you to the shores of Belfast Lough or you may prefer to visit the local pub and restaurant just a 15 minute walk away.
