High above Douglas the silhouette of these derelict cottages on Carnane Hill can be seen from far and wide around the surrounding areas of Douglas.
Maybe someone can tell us a bit more about their history??
The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Had a great view of those cottages from a flat I used to live in, always fancied going for a walk up to see them close up – until someone told me they’d stayed derelict after a house fire that killed the family living there. Kinda put me off pursuing it, but still interested to see your photos!
Great site, btw, love it!
There is also a little bit of info on these cottages on my facebook page;
Thanks for your kind comments as well 🙂
I am visiting the island for a week on 3rd March 2018 and would like to research Carnane Cottages history while I am there. Is there anything you can tell me about this?
What super shots of these derelict cottages, just the sort of subjects I look for.
I left the island when I was 18 and the story I was told when i was younger was that there was a tragic fire in the cottages which caused several fatalities- sadly some of them children. no one lived there again. this would have been possibly late 60s
