The Picturesque glen, located just north of Kirk Michael, was formerly part of the private garden belonging to the Bishops of Sodor and Man, whom resided at Bishop’s Court, opposite the Glen’s entrance. Enriched in history, locals and tourists alike will enjoy the many scenic features of the glen, many developed by previous Bishop’s and their families. A feature, hidden from view is small cave with a carved stone seat – a favourite among children and families.
