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.

A beautiful trip around the most southerly part of the Isle of Man onboard Isle of Man Diving Charters beautiful boat Kirree Varrey, skippered by my friends, Thomas and Sarah Keggen.

I was treated to some wonderful views of Sugar Loaf Rock and all it’s wildlife, Chicken Rock Lighthouse which is the most southerly point of the Isle of Man and the rugged coastline of the Calf of Man and it’s once used lighthouses, then up the coast to Bradda Head Mines with a lovely stop off trip to Cow Harbour on the Calf of Man where Thomas and Sarah made us all a cup of tea, coffee and some lovely home made cake.

All in all a fantastic experience and one I would recommend to anyone wanting to view the Southern coastline of the Isle of Man.
