Event description

Description

Tuesday 1 - Easier

St John’s – Tynwald Hill – railway line – Peel Hill – Peel

8.5 km/5 miles. Height gained 180 m/590 feet. About 3 hours walking

Description: Inland low level walk in the west of the Island leading to the west coast and to Peel and Peel Castle over Peel Hill.

We take the bus (not booked) from Douglas to St John’s and have time to explore the Royal Chapel of St John’s and Tynwald Hill – the Norse outdoor assembly site used for over a thousand years. We follow the line of the old railway track and river westwards and then gradually rise up the slope of Peel Hill with views over the Island from Corrin’s tower and Peel Hill before descending to Peel Castle and Peel itself with its harbour, promenade, Cathedral and museums. Return to Douglas by bus (not booked). Recommended outward transport times and options for return to be provided when timetables are confirmed.

What we may see: St John’s and Tynwald historic sites, riverside and wetland wildlife, mill, hill and coastal wildlife, grey seals near Peel Castle, Corrin’s tower, Peel Castle, Peel harbour, Cathedral and museums.

What to expect: Easy initial walking on flat route of former railway then gradual rise onto Peel Hill on moorland footpaths and drop to Peel harbour.
