6: Peel to Kirk Michael Raad ny Foillan

Type:Walking Route

Overlooking Fenella Beach and Peel Town

About

Grading: Moderate
Distance: 11 km / 7 miles
Start: Fenella Beach, Peel
Finish: Glen Wyllin Campsite

This fascinating section of the Raad ny Foillan will take you past chapels, churches and even past a fine collection of Norse crosses, a perfect stop for a bite to eat and some time to explore.

Head north along Peel promenade until you reach the red sandstones of Peel Headlands. As you ascend up the hill you’ll be greeted by stunning views over Peel and its surrounding areas.

After a short walk along the main road, follow a track that takes you back onto the main footpath and past St Germain’s halt station. Following a footpath that is slightly inland from the steep coast will bring you along the route of the old Manx Northern Railway, where you can still see some of the old railroad.

Eventually you will reach the pillars of the viaduct at Glen Mooar before heading down on to the beach. From here it is just a short walk to your finish point, Glen Wyllin.
