Wildflower Walks

Port Grenaugh Daffodil Walk

The Isle of Man is home to many glorious wildflowers that come into their own in the springtime!

Port Grenaugh Daffodil Walk’s name speaks for itself. The walk can be elongated by joining the Raad ny Foillan, or you can simply stroll along the flower-filled pathway, leading to Arragon House. The entrance to the walk can be found on your left as you approach Port Grenaugh Beach, which you can see clearly signposted as a footpath.

Tynwald National Park and Arboretum is a blooming lovely spot for the whole family to enjoy a casual amble. The paths wind around a lake where you can feed the ducks whilst enjoying the vibrant flowers. There’s also a playground in the arboretum for little ones. 

Baldwin Bluebell Walk takes you past the rural St Luke’s Church and towards Injebreck Reservoir, where you can see the striking bluebells before looping back to the church. Additionally, if you follow Saint Luke’s to Brandywell Road past the church you’ll come upon the Old Tynwald Hill which is commemorated with a dry stone enclosure.
