The former Castle Mona Hotel on Castle Drive/Douglas Promenade. Built for the Duke of Athol in 1804 – The Duke resided here until 1831 when this grande now once loved building then became a Hotel.

What a real shame that this beautiful building is now lying totally derelict.

Welcome to Cow Harbour on the Calf of Man.

This is the landing place on the Calf of Man where farm stock was usually landed, sheep were brought by boat but cattle were usually swum across the Sound to this inlet.

St Runius Church Marown

This was once the Parish church and was situated in about the centre of the Parish. The original building was from approximately 1200 AD and was enlarged in 1754 AD.

Three bishops are possibly buried in the graveyard here; Lonnan, Connaghan, and Runius.

This quaint little Church has no mains electricity and relies on candlelight.
