Out and About | Adventure Edit

Heading out for an adventure this Tynwald weekend? We're always looking for new spots on the island to hike around, ramble over, and wander through, always finishing with the perfect cup of coffee and cake. Here are our top picks! 

Maughold Circuit

Head over to sunny Maughold to get a real view of our rugged coastline. Starting at Port e Lewaigue head south on the foreshore until you reach the beach at Port e Vullen, continue up onto the road which leads to the costal footpath on the left. Heading around the coast, spot wildlife and wildflowers until you reach the back of St Maughold's Church. Continue down through open fields and secret beaches to the magical hidden cove of Port Mooar, (a great spot for some coffee and seal spotting), then carry on back up into Maughold village on a tranquil country road until you enter Maughold Village. Find the Celtic and Manx crosses within the church graveyard before continuing on the road back to Port Lewaigue. Ramsey or Laxey have amazing spots for some post walk rewards - try White Tiger Cafe in Ramsey, or The Shed in Laxey!

Distance: Around 5 miles.

Niarbyl to Peel Ramble

Starting at Niarbyl, head north on the main road towards Peel. Follow the marked route down a scenic footpath and track along the coast to Glen Maye. As you venture further into the wooded glen, you'll stumble upon a beautiful waterfall.

Continue along the north side of the glen back to the open coast. The rest of the journey to Peel is a cliff path that winds along the coast, crossing stiles and field boundaries, with stunning views of each bay and inlet. Peel Hill and Corrin’s Tower will slowly come into view. Pass Knockaloe on your right, with vistas up to St John’s and Tynwald Hill.

Choose your own adventure: follow the coastal path around Peel Hill and Contrary Head, or head up to Corrin’s Tower and over Peel Hill itself. The grand finale is a breathtaking view of Peel Castle, the harbour, and the inviting sands of Fenella Beach! We suggest heading into Roots to grab a hot chocolate!

Distance: Around 8 miles.

The adventure continues as the path zig-zags steeply down to the secluded and enchanting Fleshwick Bay on your left, From there, leave the Raad ny Foillan and turn right along a quiet lane for a short distance. Take the track on your right and after approximately half a mile, the track joins the A32. Turn right and continue along this scenic road back to Port Erin Station.
