Always a good spot for a bit of fresh sea air and distant views. This is a very easy level walk of no more than 3 miles, so great for an afternoon stroll to walk off the Sunday carvery. My friend Janet and I started out by the over-sized bird table on the western side of the island that commemorates the Manx ornithologist Henry Madoc, who just happened to be the Chief Constable of the island. I can’t help but think that the birds have plenty of water in these parts but it is a landmark none the same. It was a hazy day,
which didn’t lend itself to good views but it is good to stretch the eyes.
From there we walked round the southern tip, past the foghorn at Dreswick point, which incidentally I have as a night-time view of the Milky Way as a screensaver, past the gun emplacements up to the Herring Tower. We continued a little further but have to foreshorten our walk due to other commitments. On other occasions, we would walk up along the eastern side of the golf course and pop in to No 19 for coffee or lunch.
