The long abandoned farmhouse of Tholt y Will Farm which is high up in the hills overlooking the Sulby Valley with the traditional Hawthorn tree situated near to the front entrance which was reportedly planted to ward off evil.

I am led to believe that this farmhouse may have also been called “Yn Alt” which translates from Gaelic Manx to “the mountain stream”

This Tholtan in located in such a beautiful, open and isolated area of our Island and I often wonder what life was like back then for the families that lived there.

A lovely walk today to another beautiful old Manx Tholtan, this particular Tholtan is called Croit and is on the sloapes between Druidale and Sulby Reservoir.

Makes you appreciate just how lucky we are to have such a wonderful countryside on our Island.

Silly Moos Campsite or better known at Ballakillingan Farm on the TT Course at Lezayre.

I just love the wall decor on this farm entrance (only on the Isle of Man springs to mind) 🙂

Half way up Snaefell Mountain on Boxing day, when we got just around the corner Manannan’s cloak descended on Snaefell and we could not see more than a metre in front of us.

I couldn’t resist capturing this view of Kirk Christ Church this morning on the way back from Ramsey.

High up in the hills above the Sulby Valley at an area known as Slieaumonagh, which is roughly between Snaefell Mountain and Slieau Managh Mountain on the track to Block Eairy reservoir lies the remains of these beautiful Manx Crofters cottages, there must be approximately eight derelict stone cottages up there, which must really have been a small village!

I am interested to learn more about these derelict cottages, please drop me a mail via my contact page or feel free to write a comment on this page regarding this subject if you can help.

The images were all captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

This Manx Tholtan can be seen from the main road in Sulby Valley, it lies at the foot of Ballakerka Plantation and the river runing in front of it is the Sulby River.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 26mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
