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.

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.
