“Nice walk”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

This glen used to be lovely but it is now looking tired. If the people in charge would just spend a little time for some TLC it could be good again. Still a nice walk though.

“Nice Little Glen”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This is a nice little glen on a gentle hill. Its a nice walk approx 15mins taking your time with nice views at the lower end of the glen. Sometimes has special illuminations on depending on the time of the year.

“Used to be brilliant”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

This glen at the far end of Douglas Bay just at Derby castle used to be excellent and was seasonal illuminated with music to accompany, until a storm damaged most of it and it fell into ruin. The glen is up hill and a super walk through the woodland to the top past the river and waterfalls. Great place for a walk if your holiday is based in Douglas.

“My favourite place in the world”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

I visited this glen when I was a little boy (long ago) and fell in love with it. I've seen some fabulous places around the world, but Summerhill remains my favourite. A beautiful, peaceful spot which takes you away from the cares of this world for all too brief a time.
