Isle of Man Coastal Path

Isle of Man OutlineAlso known as The Raad ny Foillan - Way of the Gull, this is a 96 mile footpath around the island. Splendid scenery is encountered throughout, from the rugged sea cliffs and mountain moorland in the south, to the glens, beaches and dunes of the north. It passes sites of historical interest, colourful fishing villages, historic towns and peaceful havens. Walkers will appreciate the Isle of Man's unique character, where the pace of life seems easier and there are no coastal caravan sites to sully the scene. You will enjoy the company of gulls and seals; and the extraordinary variety of flora is a joy to behold.

The itinerary recommended in the guide book is a 9 day walk beginning at Douglas. The stages are as follows:
Douglas to Castletown
Castletown to Port St. Mary
Port St. Mary to Port Erin
Port Erin to Peel
Peel to Kirk Michael
Kirk Michael to Point of Ayre
Point of Ayre to Ramsey
Ramsey to Laxey

The Isle of Man publish and Outdoor Leisure map in two sheets (north and south) at a scale of 1:25,000 and these are worth obtaining as they provide much more detail than the OS Landranger map.
