A lovely guided walk around Killabregga Tholtans this afternoon with Ballaugh Heritage Trust, this particular Tholtan was one of the two homes amongst all the barns and piggery and threshing house etc. The upright stones to the right of the image were thought to be peat drying stones, where the peat was hung over to dry out.

Killabregga Farm was last farmed in the early 1960’s by the Kinrade family.

Spooyt Vane Chapel

This quaint chapel is reputed to be the smallest chapel on the Island, it was built as a school and later used as an Anglican mission, it is now sadly disused and in private ownership.

A lovely walk up to this beautiful once loved home which is just above Lhergydhoo between the Staarvey Road and Knocksharry on the Peel to Kirk Michael Coast Road.

Talking to a nearby farmer about this old house, he can remember this property being occupied circa 1945 by a man named Killey who had the nickname of ‘Killey the Gull’.

This Tholtan captures stunning and uninterupted views looking, North, South and to the West of the Island.

The Tholtans at Crammag, above Sulby Reservoir.

A lovely hike down to this group of tholtans this afternoon, whenever I visit these tholtans I always wonder what life was like for these people!
