Mount Aeolus in Bishopscourt Glen

Just inside the the entrance to Bishopscourt Glen (north of Kirk Michael) is an artificial mound named Mount Aeolus, created by Bishop Hildesley to commemorate Captain Elliott’s victory over the French off the Manx coast on 28 February 1760.

The mound which is shaped in similarity to Tynwald Hill has a inscribed monument on the top of it detailing Capatain Elliott’s victory.

The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.
