Isle of Man Country Parks, Walks & Viewpoints


The Isle of Man is the perfect place for walking.

There are many footpaths to offer visitors, from the long distance Raad ny Foillan (Road of the Gull) coastal footpath and the Island-long Millennium Way, to others including Bayr ny Skeddan (Herring Road) and the old Railway Lines.

Shorter paths also run  through villages, towns and the country-side.
