A view overlooking Port Erin from Mull Circle and another overlooking the Calf of Man, I must say the Heather and Gorse is looking splendid down South.

The former Traie Meanagh open air swimming baths in Port Erin opened in June 1899 and hosted swimmers for more than 80 years, closing as baths in 1981. It was then turned into a fish farm which ceased to operate in 1990.
On image 2 you can see all the abandoned changing rooms and viewing areas, it must have been a hive of activity in it’s heyday!

This lovely Tholtan was once known as Grammagh Cottage which sits next to the 17th green on Rowany Golf Course in Port Erin, this once loved home was then part of Upper Rowany Farm.
The hill in the background is the Carnanes which leads down to Fleshwick Bay.

Went up to the magical little Fairy Castle on Bradda Head in Port Erin today and had a word with the little people up there 🇮🇲
Just love these beautiful Highland Cattle which are at Ballafesson, and the tiny little fella is a bit cheeky as you can see.
Milner’s Tower on Bradda Head in Port Erin was built in 1871 by public subscription as a memorial to the benefactor of Port Erin, William Milner, who did much to help the village fishermen and the poor.
Milner was a famous safemaker from Liverpool and the unusual shape of the Tower represents a key and a lock.
