Coastal Footpath behind Peel Castle

Type:Dark Sky Site

Coastal Footpath behind Peel Castle

About

Follow the coastal path around Peel Castle to enjoy the panoramic views looking out to sea. With minimal light pollution, it’s a perfect place to admire the stars over the North West and South.  

Peel Castle is one of 26 registered Dark Sky Discovery Sites on the Isle of Man. With the help of Interpretation Boards on site, stargazers can fully enjoy the stunning views on offer in the Manx skies.

Advice and Safety:

To access the stargazing site, follow the coastal footpath on the right of the castle, under the stone archway. The path is narrow and leads to a grassed viewing area. The footpath has steps present, but the first part is flat.
