I love this little semi-derelict cottage that is sat all alone in the North of the Island.

We had a lovely walk up to this beautiful part of the Island yesterday.

Cashtal yn Ard is one of the best ancient monuments on the Isle of Man. It is one of three Neolithic tombs, dating from about 2000 BC. It is well preserved and one of the largest of its kind in the British Isles. The monument was originally a megalithic chambered Cairn holding five chambers and extending over 130 feet long. Sites of this type were used as communal burial places for Neolithic chieftains and their families.

This Manx slate Celtic Cross caught my eye today, when you look at the intricate, delicate hand carving that must have taken place to display this beautiful piece of artwork, this particular cross is more than 50 years old.

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 62mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
