Well done to Port St Mary Commisioners and the Wild Flowers of Mann Project, this little wild flower area of Port St Mary was teaming in wildlife today including I would say around 500 Painted Lady Butterflies 🦋 🇮🇲

Molly Carrooins Cottage – The Butt in Onchan

Close to the Wetlands and St Peters church in Onchan is Molly Carrooins cottage which was in fact not built as a cottage but as a weaving shed which was converted to a cottage around 1800 when a chimney stack was added to the outside of the gable wall, it then later became the home of the village washerwoman.

This tiny-whitewashed cottage, which is probably one of the oldest buildings in the village, has now been fully restored to give a taste of true village tradition, and is sometimes open to the public.

This lovely old Manx Tholtan is called Ballarghey 🇮🇲

It sits between Higher & Lower Foxdale behind Lhea Kerrow Farm, I believe it was once lived in by Philip Cain and his family but I am unsure how long ago since it was last inhabited!

Access was with kind permission from the land owner.

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.
