Event description

Description

Tuesday 5 - Strenuous

Port Erin – Bradda Head – Lhiattee ny Beinnee – the Sloc – Cronk ny Arrey Laa – Dalby – Peel Hill – Peel

24 km/15 miles. Height gained 800 m/2624 feet. About 7.5 hours walking

Description: For those who like a challenging walk. A spectacular long stretch of the coastal footpath in the southwest and west of the Island with a lot of height gained.

We take the bus (not booked) from Douglas to Port Erin and follow the route of the Raad ny Foillan/Way of the Gull long distance coastal footpath through hill and moorland with three steep ascents and drops. From Port Erin we go onto Bradda Head with a steep descent into Fleshwick (alternative gentler route in poor weather/visibility). A steep rise leads to Lhiattee ny Beinnee and down for a break at the Sloc. We then rise again to Cronk ny Arree Laa at 437m/1449 feet the second highest peak in the south and drop down as we head north towards Dalby, Glen Maye, its lovely waterfall and along the coast to Peel Hill and our arrival in Peel. 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: Coastal wildlife, choughs, ravens, gulls, moorland wildlife. Milner’s tower on Bradda Head, Bronze Age burial at Cronk ny Arrey Laa, St James’ Church Dalby, Glen Maye waterfall and mining remains, Corrin’s Tower and Peel Castle and harbour.

What to expect: Almost entirely on narrow coastal, cliff and moorland footpaths over rough ground. A stretch on country tracks and roads and one descent over smooth bedrock. Steep uphill and downhill slopes.
