The Raad ny Foillan (Way of the Gull) is a 98 mile footpath around the Isle of Man. There is splendid scenery to be encountered throughout the walk, from rugged sea cliffs and mountain moorland in the south, to the glens, beaches and dunes of the north. It passes sites of historical interest, colourful fishing villages, historic towns and peaceful havens.

In its journey around the Isle of Man, the Raad ny Foillan offers a variety of scenery, it wends its way through several nature reserves and along a disused railway. The footpath is never far from the sea or the cry of the gull. It is suitable for the gentler walker to do in short day-walk sections and for the dedicated backpacker and fit fell-runner to set up a personal record for the delightful circuit of this beautiful island.

The route description for the Raad ny Foillan is set out as a circuit and split into stages, with the longest walk being 15.5 miles and the shortest being 7 miles. Any fast walkers may wish to complete two stages per day, while those progressing at a more leisurely pace may decide to amble along and take in the splendid attractions along the way.

There are two other walks described in this guidebook – The Millennium Way, which follows the ancient route of the kings, from Ramsey to Castletown, and The Herring Way which takes a more traditional route from Peel to Castletown.  Both these routes cross the hills of the island’s interior and can be combined to make an interesting longer walk.
