    What a lovely riverside walk with a waterfall aswell! What's not to like? A boardwalk has been provided for most of it.

    We walked southerly parts of this around island coastal path, from Port Erin, Port St. Mary and also Peel. Stunning scenery. It can be a bit blustery and the weather changeable, so go prepared.

    Really enjoyed our trip to Port Erin. The engines are beautifully kept and the stations are so clean. Staff are very good. Not to be missed.

    Read about this place on tripadvisor,in the vicinity of it,so we put "maps"on my wifes phone and googled it,which lead us down one lane roads till we had to stop at a small turn around on gravelled ground,just a rutted path before us,then we walked in the general direction of the sound of running water,down the path,no signage anywhere,eventually coming to a fast running stream,narrow wooden bridge,a wooden fence,with a gateway declaring "no pony trekking",through the gate,coming to a set of steep steps with a wooden handrail to the valley floor,the waterfall to our right,probably couldn't find it again if we tried,but it was well worth the trek,trouble and exertion taken!

    Hidden away down a very narrow walled causeway past the horrible half-closed golf club hotel, this glorious island has lots going for it.

    Gorgeous views and fascinating geological formations with lots of nature abound. An old fort and a ruined chapel add to the interest. However, both of these places are not open to walk around - what appear to be ancient rusted gates stop you from getting inside and having a proper look - a pity, as the fort looked like it had some interesting things inside.

    Brilliant interactive and visual museum. Enjoy the initial film journey into the past in the presence of one of its earliest families, learn about the islands inhabitants. Very informative exhibits and well delivered. Does not talk down to visitors but engages and introduces the islands heritage. My third visit, also has a souvenir shop and cafe.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our various journeys using the Electric Railway. Staff are excellent and it is a great way to move around the island. Excellent service.It is a great experience and not to be missed. All age groups will enjoy it and it can take you up to the top of Snaefell mountain and back of course.

    There isn’t a lot to see, just a small roofless ruined stone chapel in a field along the side of the A1. It’s the folklore that makes the place famous!

    The local Buggane (ogre) was annoyed when a church was built here and enraged by the sound of the bells tore the roof off. Even though the roof was replaced, it was torn off again by the Buggane.

    There is a wonderful story that just before the last attempt to reroof the church, a local tailor named Timothy Clucas bet he could sit in the church all night and make a pair of breeches and exorcise the Buggane. He stitched rapidly at the trousers all night ignoring the taunts from the Buggane . The trousers finished, Timothy jumped out of the church just as the Buggane tore the roof off again.

    The Buggane chased after him and Timothy ran as fast as he could to Marown Church where he took safety in consecrated ground. Bugganes are unable to stand in Consecrated ground and was so cross he tore off his head and threw it over the churchyard wall. Timothy escaped, the Buggane was never seen again and the church remains roofless...

    The crosses by the church were lovely with great detail. Well presented. The church itself is still active. One ancient cross is set into a niche.

    My daughter loved it here. You can buy tubs of food to feed the horses and donkeys. It is free entry and there is a lovely little cafe where you can purchase lunch, cake and drinks. Definitely worth a visit.

    This is a small new museum that only opened in 2014. I only stumbled upon it by accident as I was walking to Onchan.

    It is only open for a few hours on sundays. Entrance is free and you go to a small shed which is labelled as the museum. Although you see lots of signs telling the public to keep out as the other sheds are where the trams are parked.

    There was no one there in the museum when I went, although someone did pop around and tell me that usually someone is about to tell you about the history of the trams.

    I just had a look around myself. There are lots of photographs, exhibits and information boards but it is all a bit chaotic.

    The place is only of interest if you are an electric tram buff. It was a shame there was no one around to guide me.
