On the steep sloapes overlooking the Tholt y Will Valley in Sulby lies a number of derelict Manx Tholtans and are called the Corrady, the last time I visited this area in 2004 the roof of this particular Tholtan was truly intact See 2004 image

Both the below images were captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR Camera with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

We went for a beautiful walk this evening up to “The Forgotten Valley” at Glen Dhoo in Ballaugh.

Glen Dhoo in Manx Gaelic simply means “Black Glen” because when the sun is sinking in the sky and disappears behind the hill the Glen is cast into shade.

This forgotten valley is untouched and absolutely beautiful and this lovely little Manx Tholtan, better known as “The Port” or “Phurt” has a small stream running past the front of it.

The images were all captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

This Manx Tholtan can be seen from the main road in Sulby Valley, it lies at the foot of Ballakerka Plantation and the river runing in front of it is the Sulby River.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 26mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
