Flown over to the Isle of Man for the week's ManxCacheFest events, and an extra event was planned at this trig point on my birthday! For a small island, the scenery is different and stunning, especially as it was a lovely evening here for the event. The trig point is dwarfed by the nearby tower, and together they command wonderful views over gorse, heather and lichen-clad rocks! TP in good condition.

Attending a geocaching event close by, pleased to see this is now a new YOSM too. YSM626 Dreswick Point if anyone is interested. Very easy walk from the car park to this one. Trig in good condition.

Took the dogs for a walk around Langness and Dreswick Point for a bit of geocaching and trig bagging, slightly drizzly so fairly quiet. I thought I had previously logged this trig but obviously not, pillar in good condition and lowest one on the Island I believe!

Short walk from the car park to the trig on the beautiful Langness peninsula. Got about half way up the spiral stairs inside the tower but didn't fancy going any further, so instead ignored Clarkson's 'private property' signs for a fine walk to Langness Point.

Easy to find. Short walk from the car park. Headed for the Herring tower and the trig is next to it. Amazing views. Walked round the back of Jeremy Clarksons lighthouse. Lots of private property signs but it is a right of way. Watched seals playing in the waves.

vgc, no cap or plug. Impressed to discover the spiral staircase is still intact, unguarded, no attempt to discourage visitors from using it. That could never happen on the mainland! Head E from car park to find path S to trig. Nice spot, especially at sunset.

On the beautiful Langness Peninsular with great views. Locals would refer to its location as Herring Tower. Nowhere near Dreswick point. Area recently the subject of bitter dispute over Rights of Way caused by Jeremy Clarkson being more obnoxious than normal.

Getting dark at 6.30pm at this time of year. Weather not great but view back to Castletown\Derbyhaven & South Barrule was good, must be great at a good sunset. Easiest approach is from the lighthouse. Nice walk around the penninsular from\to Castletown and even the stick & ball belters were jovial! No cars, on foot!

I was fortunate enough to have a business trip out to the IoM so decided to stay for the weekend. I stopped at King Wlliam's School at the end of the runway which is also a hostel - for 12.50 per night. I walked out to this trig to forget about the days work ans unwind and work up an appitite & thirst. weather not too good but it did the trick! Enjoyed the nightlife of Castletown which was quiet apart from a bobby with a white helmet.
