Cashtal yn Ard (The Castle of the Heights)

Cashtal yn Ard is one of the best ancient monuments on the Isle of Man. It is one of three Neolithic tombs, dating from about 2000 BC. It is well preserved and one of the largest of its kind in the British Isles. The monument was originally a megalithic chambered Cairn holding five chambers and extending over 130 feet long. Sites of this type were used as communal burial places for Neolithic chieftains and their families.
