Rugged cliffs, rolling hills, picturesque glens, hidden coves and stunning views. These are just a few of the reasons why the Isle of Man is a walker's delight. Whether you enjoy a gentle stroll or a challenging hike, there’s a range of footpaths and tracks for you to explore.
Would you like to walk around the coast of an entire country? The Raad Ny Foillan
, the coastal footpath, is a challenging 100 mile walk. The views and wildlife are so incredibly that you may prefer to break it into smaller sections to really make the most of the scenery. Download the Raad ny Foillan Coastal Footpath Guide
which splits the 100 mile walk into 12 manageable sections.
Aside from challenging hikes, you’ll find hidden coves accessible only by foot, stunning glens just a few minutes’ walk from a road, deserted beaches, rolling hills, desolated moors and a feeling of remoteness coupled with some of the most beautiful scenery in the British Isles.
Walking is a very popular pastime on the Isle of Man and the Manx Footpaths Conservation Group extends a warm welcome to all visitors. The group is affiliated to The Ramblers and offers a great variety of walks throughout the year.
You will also find a series of QR Code points which have been placed around the Island where you can access photographs, a description of the site, videos and an audio tour about where you’re standing. All a visitor needs is their smart phone or tablet, a 4G connection, and the free QR Code app, available to download from any app store.
