Dhoon Glen Delights

Type:Walking Route

Manx Electric Railway - Dhoon Glen Station

About

Grading: Moderate
Distance: 3.2 km / 2 miles 

Start & Finish: Dhoon Glen Halt (on the Manx Electric Railway)

Dhoon Glen is one of the Island’s most dramatic glens and waterfalls, known for its natural and rugged beauty. Nestled within a steep-sided valley, the entrance to an isolated cove can be found, the cove of Dhoon Bay. Dhoon Bay, with its amazing rock formations, pebble beach and solitude makes it a perfect destination to explore, relax or even enjoy a peaceful picnic, listening to the sounds of the sea.

The return route takes you over the cliffs with stunning coastal views before walking amongst the tree canopy and back to the car park. The spectacular walk can be enjoyed at any time of the year, but is particularly stunning in the spring and autumn.
