Guided walks for October and November

I have added five walks for October and November, alternating between Friday and Sunday mornings.

These are as follows:

Sunday 3rd October: North Barrule and the Corrany Valley – the return of the most popular walk taking in (possibly!) the finest Manx hill and the spectacular ridge running to Clagh Ouyr.

Friday 15th October: Slieau Dhoo from Ballaugh Glen – a short but steep ascent through the plantation followed by a spectacular descent into Glen Dhoo (new route).

Sunday 31st October: Slieau Managh and Sulby Glen tholtans from Tholty Will – amazing views and fascinating history (new route).

Friday 12th November: Slieau Freoaghane the the ‘hidden valley’ – another popular walk, remote valleys and mine workings.

Sunday 28th November: Slieau Ruy and Lhargee Ruy from Little London – a beautiful walk in the middle of the island with consistently great views.

All walk are £15 per walker and can be book at

Details can also be found at

Hope to see you on some or all of these walks,
