This page provides more background on the Isle of Man, describing the opportunities for long distance walks, hiking in the hills, following coastal trails and short walks in the Glens. There's information on the highest hill, Snaefell, and the famous Manx railways dating from the 19th century.
Although its days as a traditional seaside resort island have passed, it's a splendid place for walking holidays, and you can mix the walks with golf and other outdoor pursuits. And it's a great place to go for peace and quiet away from the main towns - we didn't see many other hikers during our stay.< Back to England page for links to other stories
