A beautiful and busy day at the Calf Sound today, all down to a very busy TT 2018.

This view overlooks the most Southerly aspect of the Isle of Man which is better known as the Calf of Man.

Strathallen Castle, formerly the Clifton Hotel in Port St Mary, was built on a promontory which has superb views of Port St Mary Bay and the rugged cliffs towards the Chasms.

Look at the little bridge leading to St. Thomas’s Isle which was once a private boat launch.

The property is in slight disrepair now but what a beautiful place to live.

Spring Bank Cottage near to Sulby Claddagh.

I just love this little old once loved cottage which was once a crofters cottage and former home of the well known local charachter called Philly Quayle.

The Raven is a bird of legend and superstition and there are a number of places on the Island which include Raven in their names. The Island has a strong Viking element in its history and Odin, the Norse God, was, according to mythology, accompanied by two Ravens. During the Millennium Year of 1979, a replica of a Viking longship was sailed from Norway to the Isle of Man by a mixed Norwegian and Manx crew. The longship, which is now preserved on the Island, is called “Odin’s Raven”.
