Description

40 half to full day walks on the coast and fells of the Isle of Man are explored in this guidebook. Most of the walks are short and accessible for walkers of all abilities. For walkers looking for a greater challenge, there are longer adventures and plenty of opportunities to combine routes.

Walking on the Isle of Man is a clear demonstration of an island's ability to pack a diverse range of landscapes and walking into a small area. The Isle of Man is no exception, and the routes in this guide scale mountains like Snaefell, cross wide open moorlands, drift over beaches and scale coastal clifftops.

The assortment provides walkers with fantastic trails, along with detail on the wildlife, wild flowers, unique history and points of interest that the walks encounter. Alongside detailed route descriptions and OS maps, there is plenty of practical information on getting to and around the Manx Isle and advice on making the most out of any exploration of the Isle of Man.
