Artic Terns – Point of Ayre

Artic Terns return to the Island at this time of year to lay their eggs and bring up their young.

These birds make some of the largest migrations known, flying from the Artic to Antarctic each year.

Sections of the beach at the Point of Ayre are roped off to protect the birds and it is an offence to disturb them so please respect our nature.

Rose Cottage, Regaby and the Hand of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley.

The interesting aspect of this beautiful Manx Cottage is the gate pillar and the cast hand of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley. Measured from floor to the tip of the hand it measures 7’11″ which is exactly the same height of the Manx Giant.

Apparently Captain George Burrows, had a Market Garden and a coal yard in Parliament Street in Ramsey and he lived in Rose Cottage. He employed ‘The Manx Giant’ and he had the hands made which he put on the gatepost. He (Capt George Burrows) also gave some items belonging to Arthur Caley to the Manx Museum in Douglas.

Kerrowdhoo Farm at Cranstal, Bride, I am sure in it’s day it would have been a beautiful home/farmstead, but now sadly for sale for total re-development.
