About

Settled on an upland plateau overlooking the Calf of Man, Cregneash village was one of the last strongholds of the Manx language and customs which characterised the crofting way of life. Step inside the Manx cottages to see how crofters lived through stories, skills and craft demonstrations. Take time to enjoy the changing seasons and natural history. You may see cats with no tails, four-horned sheep and traditional farming practices in action.

Cregneash Village also offers good sky views in all directions. Cregneash is the perfect place to admire the stars, with some of the darkest skies on Island.

Cregneash Village 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:

The stargazing site is located at the picnic area, in front of the Creg y Shee Café in the Cregneash village. The area is grassed with picnic tables present.
