3 images of Manx Tholtans, image 1 and 2 are Park Llewellyn. This beautiful once loved Manx Tholtan at Park Llewellyn sits on the foot of the slopes of North Barrule. Quite difficult to imagine how tough life in this isolated home might have been. But believe me the view out the front door overlooking Cornaa Valley with views of the North Laxey Mines nearby might have been some consolation. Without a doubt one of the most beautiful ruins on the entire island 🇮🇲

Image 3 is the nearby Tholtan of Cornaa Farm which I believe was still occupied in the late 70’s, again this beautiful once loved home enjoyed very similar views to the neighbouring Park Llewellyn.

Looking towards Maughold Head from Reayrt Chalse (Charlie’s View) at Ballafayle.

These two bronze sculptured Ravens are erected high above Ballafayle in memory of the late Sir Charles Kerruish (1917 – 2003). Sir Charles was a well known politician and former Speaker of the House of Keys.

What a beautiful and peaceful place this is to visit.

A lovely walk today on the Wizard of Mann Trail in Ballaglass Glen, found the Fairy House and said hi to the Fairies down there then had a word on the Wizard too 🇮🇲

The Bluebells are not in full bloom yet so another visit to this beautiful glen is a must very soon.

Formerly the Slieu Lewaigue Hotel, this hotel was first opened in the 1880’s and demolished by fire in 1896, this lovely property is now in private ownership.

It was called the Rest and be Thankful because in the days of coach and horses, the pub going passengers would be let out at the bottom of the hill and were required to walk up at their own pace as the horses went on ahead.
