Sulby is famous for its
mountain glen through which runs the Silverburn
river. Part of the glen was given to the Manx
National Trust and is mostly dense woodland
with streams, waterfalls, wooden bridges and a
Monk’s Well. A second part has the oldest
water-powered merry-go-round in the world,
with horses dating back to the early 1900s.

Panoramic views which include Cronk Sumark and Gob y Volley can be enjoyed from Sulby Claddagh, the only genuine common left on the Isle of Man. The area is largely used for camping and recreation.
