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.

This small group of tholtans are situated deep in the trees in the heart of Tholt y Will Plantation, Craigmooar means Great Rock or Crag.

Craigmooar belongs to a small group of nearby hill farms (now tholtans) namely Killabrega, Sherragh Vane and Bulrhenny.

It is believed that Craigmooar was about 80 acres in total and apparently In 1874, there was a woman and her daughter recorded living here as being unable to speak anything other than Manx, probably some of the last people to be like that on the Island.

This particular group of tholtans took some finding but it was well worth it and makes you realise just how hard life would have been for the inhabitants of these isolated hill farms.

A lovely hike down to this group of tholtans this afternoon, whenever I visit these tholtans I always wonder what life was like for these people!

This old abandoned farm sits high up above the Sulby valley and is typical of those found in the upland areas of the Island, the remains of the horse driven mill and a small orchard are still visible, my records show that John and Lisa Kinrade were still resident at the farm as late as the 1943.

Sulby Claddagh looking nice and busy this morning which is probably due the Festival of Motor Cycling taking place which is better known in old money as the Manx Grand Prix.
