“A very enjoyable walk from the sea front up to Shopright”

During a recent visit to the Island for the TT we used this Glen to walk down from the Grandstand to the seafront. I would love to see this Glen at night when the lighting is switched on. We loved looking for all the little fairy doorways in the tree trunks.

For those who don't believe in fairies, this is the place to come, since many of them live here, and you can easily find their small homes. But, finding the fairies themselves, requires patience and a lot of faith.

The glen is tranquil and beautiful; a few steps to deal with to get in, but well worth taking time out to find.

Nice glen with illuminations to take a stroll through at night...make sure its gone a bit dark though.
Path can be a bit slippery after rain. Kids will like it.

This is a lovely glen, at Christmas when the fairy lights are on it's enchanting and great for small children to see to get them all excited for Christmas. In the Summer it's equally as pretty.

I have walked through Summerhill Glen many times and think the lights are an absolute wonder. My husband had a photograph of the Glen put on a 3ft x 2 1/2 ft canvas courtesy of a fabulous photographer called Ben Birdsall who is only 16. Check out his Facebook page and look at all his photos. You won't be disappointed
