When I was a kid, we used to go to Summerhill Glen, and as soon as I saw that the lights were in I wanted to bring my 4 yr old daughter! So tonight we did it and we all loved our walk, granted we were glad we were not pushing a push chair! Even my friend with a dodgy... More

We entered the glen from the top end, and initial impressions were that if ever a glen looked and felt run down, then this was it. However, there was a failryland feel to the bottom end and I will not go into detail here; I reckon the best time to visit would be around dusk. I used to come to... More

We took our boys (4 and 5) to the glen late at night and they were entranced. It is such a magical place! They loved the dinosaur lights and gnomes n their toadstools!

i did not know what to expect, it could do with a bit of care, more flowers a tidy up etc , there was beer cans and litter thrown about, not visitors i don't think they would not have found it up the hill, it could be a hidden jewel

I went back to the fairy glen in 2013 and 2014 having not been on the Isle of man since the early 70s. I went in as we used to from the seafront side and walked up the glen. In 2013 I went during daylight hours and although it was lovely and I got to sit on the cannons again,... More
