This outstanding coastal walk in the north of the Island provides spectacular views whilst walking along a section of the Raad ny Foillan. Maughold Brooghs is an excellent area for observing marine and birdlife and in the summer, wildflowers abound including bluebells and orchids. Be sure to visit the Island's largest collection of carved Celtic and Viking Crosses in the grounds of St Maughold's Church including one of the earliest examples of the Triskellion, the Manx three legs emblem. The walk follows on to a small bay and returns along very quiet country lanes through the charming village of Maughold, offering far-reaching views over rolling countryside.
