A lovely afternoon spent walking around the Calf of Man, very changeable weather conditions, a big thank you to Thomas Keggen of Boat Trips Isle of Man for such a great trip to and from South Harbour on the Calf.

Well done to Port St Mary Commisioners and the Wild Flowers of Mann Project, this little wild flower area of Port St Mary was teaming in wildlife today including I would say around 500 Painted Lady Butterflies 🦋 🇮🇲

Molly Carrooins Cottage – The Butt in Onchan

Close to the Wetlands and St Peters church in Onchan is Molly Carrooins cottage which was in fact not built as a cottage but as a weaving shed which was converted to a cottage around 1800 when a chimney stack was added to the outside of the gable wall, it then later became the home of the village washerwoman.

This tiny-whitewashed cottage, which is probably one of the oldest buildings in the village, has now been fully restored to give a taste of true village tradition, and is sometimes open to the public.

This lovely old Manx Tholtan is called Ballarghey 🇮🇲

It sits between Higher & Lower Foxdale behind Lhea Kerrow Farm, I believe it was once lived in by Philip Cain and his family but I am unsure how long ago since it was last inhabited!

Access was with kind permission from the land owner.
