This and a couple of other trigs brought me to the IoM for a wee break. I'm afraid I caught the tram up but only because of a planned yomp to Ramsey. Sadly the cloudbase was too low so no views (hence score). I waited 15 mins in the café as it looked like it might clear, but no luck, so headed off for North Barrule. Wind speed and temperature almost made me don waterproof!

We were blessed with a wonderful day although it was a bit breezy of course up here, but the views from the trig point were wonderful = reservoir, moorland, glacial valley below and even the Snaefell Railway and cafe - what else could anyone ask for?!!

Not actively trigpointing at this time, hence late logging of it. My main interest was the Snaefell Mountain Railway, and that's what brought us to the summit! Outstanding views on a glorious afternoon (heavy showers previously meant perfect visibility).

I'm sure in nice weather its lovely but today 28th June its far from summer! Rain sheeting in sideways with a gale force wind, no visibility. Got off the train and battled around the concrete path but was forced back, couldn't see. Went to the cafe for a dry off and coffee and booted up the TUK app and attempted it again following the GPS. Totally drenched within 5 mins! Still wasn't going to miss my only pillar opportunity whilst here.

My second entry for this mountain - Ive visited the trig several times before via the Mountain Railway but always felt it was a bit of a plastic. Today I got the Electric Railway to Laxey, legged it to the shore - where the tide was fully out - dipped my toe in the sea and footed it up to the summit. The route to the old mines is simple enough if not the best underfoot. From the mines to Bungalow is an obvious track that has been used by off road moto bikes at some point. Today it was extremely wet (day before was persistant heavy rain) and very boggy in places. Windy as hell at the trig (in all but 1 of our visits its been just so). Generally, any photo you take wont do justice to the view the eye can see. NC(or railway)OF!

Visited here on my last day walking the Raad ny Foillan (Way of the Gull). I came up Laxey Glen, across the main road and through knee deep snow drifts to the summit, carrying full camping gear the whole way. This was back before I had started logging trig pillars so I only took a picture of the topograph. The views out to sea were quite poor, though I could still see all around where I had been walking over the previous few days. I decided to take the easier way back down along the train tracks. It was past 1am by the time that I rolled into Douglas and after dozing for half an hour by the double doors a security guard mercifully let me into the ferry terminal.

Why only a 4 Ted? - because all I could see was the nearest building! Terrible conditions but got better as the day wore on. Ice build up on one side of the trig. I was staying in King William's School in Castletown so got an early bus to Douglas and was then foxed by the lack of busses to Bungalow, so instead cought a bus to the outskirts of Douglas and hitched from there - from a fellow walker who had walked around the island the previous year.

Walked up from Bungalow on a warm summer's evening. This should be the jewel of the island, but there is a lot of clutter up here, making the summit look a mess. However, the view is the saving grace. Scotland and England visible, Wales and Ireland lost in the mist.

Height of base on which Trig Pillar stands is 2036ft. [Hand held GPSr reading 2039ft.] Plug in top of pillar missing filled in with possibly tarmac. Sunny day, good views of the IOM but other kingdoms were not visible. Windy on summit.

Latest of 5 visits, first in August 1960. Walked up from Laxey beach in just under 2 hours. Easiest way is from tram terminus ! Much assorted paraphernalia around summit but a most interesting place nonetheless. Fine views over the Island and to the "adjacent islands".

Our last trig on the Island. The Isle of Man is an island of contrasts where the trigs are concerned. The ones above 400m (6no) are excellent with easy access. The ones below 200m (9no), with the exception of Corrins Hill and Dreswick Point are more problematic with access, livestock etc as described in our entries. We ascended Snaefell by train (10 pound rover ticket for all IOM transport). The summit has excellent views and England, Scotland and Ireland were visible (66 miles to Ireland!) according to the nearby viewfinder. There are also two masts and other hill furniture which detracts slightly. Tarmac plug.

Windeeeeeeeeeeeeee as hell. Great view. My first and only 'plastic', the railway takes you within spitting distance (well it would have today in this wind). No cars, via the railway. Photo from May 2005 in a less windy climate & on a hike to Laxey via North Barrule (railway to Snaefell then on foot), We were extremely fortunate that the 6 kindoms were visible on this visit. Another 'plastic' visit on 26/09/2006 (after a lenghty coastal walk though). Woman at the trig thought the 3 arms of the spider 'must be because it's to do with the Isle of Man' (I did enlighten her a little!).

Walked up from the Bungalow which took about 30 minutes. Very very windy at the summit, and rather ugly looking radio masts. Trig point in good nick though. Splendid clear views all round but just too hazy in the distance to make out the mainland. Took the railway down both out of cultual curiosity and sloth. REVISITED: 04/09/06 Walked up this time from the north side, crossing the railway line where lots of fogies in carriage pointed in awe at the idiot who didn't get the train. I've been up this mountain a few times and for the first time it wasn't misty. Beautiful views in every direction.

I did this one the hard way on foot, whilst others in the group took the easy route!

Isle of Man Top. After many times as a competitor, on this occasion I was just a supporter on the Manx Mountain Marathon.
