Spooyt Vane Waterfall

This is one of the highest waterfalls on the Isle of Man and is situated in a very isolated but tranquil setting in Glen Mooar, the name means ‘white spout’.  Close by are the remains of a keeill, Cabbyl Pherick, and a priests cell.  Spooyt Vane and Cabbyl Pherick are both accessed by ‘The Monks Road‘ this ancient road is at least 1500 years old and once linked up all the Island’s 220 keills.

    This is such a delightful spot and the ruined keil breathes hitory.

    Delightful peaceful and spiritual spot , defines ” hidden gem”, 2 gems in this case , well worth the short walk through the woods to the waterfall and you can take in the tranquility of St Patrick’s keeil on the way
