Isle of Man Coastal Path - Self Guided Walking Holiday

Walkers' Britain has been offering walking holidays since 1973. On your travels with us, you will benefit from packages with detailed route notes, maps, pre-departure information and personal service provided. You overnight where available in locally owned and operated B&Bs, hotels and inns to provide you with a charming local experience.

Our Isle of Man Coastal Path holiday is a walking experience of approximately 100 miles / 161 km around the Manx Isle. Called the 'Raad ny Foillan' which translates to: 'The Way of the Gull', people have been walking segments of this trail for hundreds of years and was first written about as a walk in 1874. It was however in 1986 that the Way was inaugurated at Peel, the cultural heart of the island, and has changed little since.

Starting at the Island's Capital, Douglas, the route quickly leaves behind the built up areas and follows a quiet coastal road that becomes a cliff top trail towards the ancient Capital, Castletown passing glens and bays on the way. From Castletown the route passes around the southern point of the island following dramatic high cliffs and passing the 'Calf of Man' a small island, now home to a bird sanctuary where tidal races whip around the rocks and friendly seals play. From Port Erin to Peel the way follows the high coastal hills and dales and on a clear day you might see the so called 'realms.' This leads to the island's only City, Peel, rich in Celtic culture.

Next, the walk follows the lowering cliffs and joins a debunked railway line to beyond the village of Kirk Michael, where you actually join the beach and walk around Jurby Head. Over the next day the coast path follows the beach round to the old fishing town of Ramsey. From here you wind back up onto the cliffs around Maughold Head with some beautiful coves and glens, to continue on quiet roads to Laxey: famous for its lead mines, and the "Lady Isabella", the world's oldest working water wheel.

The final leg takes in a nature reserve, an ancient church and a final fling on the coastal trail before joining the long Promenade back into Douglas to complete the island loop.
