Looking towards the Summer

The Summer on the Manx Hills is a wonderful time of year and I hope to have some guided walks scheduled soon for you to join. Things have been a little quiet after a bout of covid and a twisted ankle! I have also been finishing my Blue Badge tour guide qualification and now that I have passed this rigorous process I can work with groups from the visiting cruise ships etc and now have a deeper knowledge of Manx history to share with you. I have also been training as a brakesman on the Snaefell Mountain Railway (which seems like a logic extension of Manx Mountain Activities!) and will be working there a couple of days a week through the summer.

So look out for new walks being advertised soon and also look out for me with cruise ships groups and on the mountain railway.

Hope to see you soon,
