Tour Description:

Our journey starts in Glen Mona where we take the public footpath and minor road up to the ancient site of Cashtal yn Ard (also referred to as King Orry’s Castle). Here we can view the Neolithic Cairn which dates to around 3000BC. At the site you can enjoy the beautiful scenery overlooking North Barrule and its ridge leading to Snaefell.

We then continue down the road until we reach the gorgeous bay of Port Cornaa. After spending some time enjoying the views, we continue back up the footpath running adjacent to the river. *Note: Cornaa Trout Hatchery is only open to the public on Wednesdays in school holidays (from Weds 24th July till Weds 28th Aug).

On reaching the road we then use the opportunity to visit the Trout Hatchery where you can learn about the Trout Farm and the role it plays on the Island.

On leaving the Trout Hatchery we cross over the road into the stunningly beautiful Ballaglass Glen. Here we follow the route back up the river walking amongst the many species of trees. Mature oak, beech, larch and pine can be seen on the trail as we pass the old corn mill and mining building dating from 19th Century. Once we leave the wooded area, we cross over the electric railway tramlines and through a few fields before we make our way back to the starting point.

This trail is mostly made up of minor roads and public footpaths with good ground conditions. However small sections could be muddy so appropriate footwear is recommended.
