Tholtans

All posts tagged Tholtans

A short video clip to go with my last set of images of the beautiful Tholtans of Crammag high up above Sulby Reservoir, and a little further on to Lhergyrhenny and its little Tholtan up there 🇮🇲

Such a beautiful area but I realise these people who lived there must have had a very hard life especially in such an isolated area of the Isle of Man.

Love this little packhorse bridge over the Crammag River in Sulby. It is so isolated and I would imagine used by the occupants of the nearby Crammag Tholtans about a mile or so away.

3 images of Manx Tholtans, image 1 and 2 are Park Llewellyn. This beautiful once loved Manx Tholtan at Park Llewellyn sits on the foot of the slopes of North Barrule. Quite difficult to imagine how tough life in this isolated home might have been. But believe me the view out the front door overlooking Cornaa Valley with views of the North Laxey Mines nearby might have been some consolation. Without a doubt one of the most beautiful ruins on the entire island 🇮🇲

Image 3 is the nearby Tholtan of Cornaa Farm which I believe was still occupied in the late 70’s, again this beautiful once loved home enjoyed very similar views to the neighbouring Park Llewellyn.

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 up to this beautiful once loved home which is just above Lhergydhoo between the Staarvey Road and Knocksharry on the Peel to Kirk Michael Coast Road.

Talking to a nearby farmer about this old house, he can remember this property being occupied circa 1945 by a man named Killey who had the nickname of ‘Killey the Gull’.

This Tholtan captures stunning and uninterupted views looking, North, South and to the West of the Island.

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.
