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.

Passing Raymond Caley’s old shop at Sulby Cross Roads today I couldn’t help myself stopping and snapping a few pics of the store, Raymond’s lovely memorial plaque and that old hand made open and closed sign that Raymond changed each morning and night. Raymond was an absolute Gentleman who I loved chatting to – RIP Raymond “Gone Fishing”

How lucky we are 🙂

Standing high up at Druidale, extreme left of the image is North Barrule then to the right Clagh Ouyr, Snaefell Mountain is in the middle of the image and you can make out Sulby Reservoir to the right. The trees in the foreground are at Tholt y Will Plantation.

Spring Bank Cottage near to Sulby Claddagh.

I just love this little old once loved cottage which was once a crofters cottage and former home of the well known local charachter called Philly Quayle.

Nestling into the foot of the hill in the Sulby Valley is this beautiful isolated cottage called Killabregga Cottage.

You can just make out the zig zag footpath to the side of the cottage which eventually brings you out at Killabregga Tholtans. You can see more Tholtans on my Isle of Man Tholtans Page.

Also to the right of this little cottage is a beautiful waterfall.
