Took the tram to the top, passes the famous Bungalow TT station. Views were not great on our trip but could be spectacular on a clear day. It was so windy we had to shelter behind the buildings.

We visited in early November so the train was not running nor was the cafe open. We parked at the bungalow and walked up. It isn't a particularly hard climb and takes about 25 minutes. The view from the top is outstanding! Plus the snow was an added bonus. As the train wasn't running we walked back down the train tracks which was a great way to get down rather than sliding on ones derriere! Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful sunny day with good visibility for this trip albeit windy! Went up on the train which was fun. Took pics at the trig point hanging on for dear life as the gale force winds at the top of the mountain threatened to blow us away. Then visited the cafe for a coffee and bun. Being keen (although not young) walkers we had already planned a walk back down to Laxey from Snaefell. It took a couple of hours and you need stout walking shoes etc. as there is a stream to cross and it is a bit like fell-walking in places. The OS map was useless in this respect as not all the paths it showed actually existed higher up (although the initial path from the peak to the crossing of the main road was clear). The signalman at the railway stop just below the peak of Snaefell where the main road crossed was very helpful and showed us the correct route to take (a bit of a sheep track). Once we were off the mountain peak the wind abated to normal levels and we thoroughly enjoyed the trek to Laxey followed by a well earned cream tea.

The highest 'mountain' on the Island and to get there, take the small wooden tram from Laxey which creaks and winds its way up. From the top, you have a glorious view across to Northern Ireland, Ireland, Scotland, England the Wales. Nice walks up there too and a little cafè also doing food.
