2020-05-31T08:36:05+01:00

A great mix of coastal walking and wildlife,with the medieval and modern history of the Isle of Man. Beginning at Castle Rushen, we follow the coast past Hango Hill, through Derbyhaven and onto Langness to see the Iron Age and Norse promontory forts, the landmark tower, the Provider stone, and then on to the medieval chapel and Derby fort on St Michael’s Isle. Look out for birds of the shore and sea.

Norse, World War II & maybe wallabies – Jurby & Ballaugh Curragh

We explore St Patrick’s Church, Jurby, with its Norse crosses, RAF connections and cemetery then walk past Keeill Kickle, Ballateare and the site of Killane mill. We then dip into the wetlands of Ballaugh Curragh and walk back by Jurby airfield and the new transport museum. From Ancient Viking sites to the RAF; from local wildlife to the chance of seeing a wallaby.

Take in the views on one of the best coastal walks in the British Isles! We explore near the Chasms (deeply fissured rock formations), the Sugarloaf (home to kittiwakes, guillemots and razorbills), the promontories of Black Head and Spanish Head, and views over the Sound to the Calf of Man and Kitterland with their colonies of seals…..and much more.
