For anyone who enjoys walking, the peace and tranquillity afforded by the beautiful forests and glens of the Isle of Man is a delight that awaits every visitor venturing to our shores.

To set the scene, a series of 12 varied and fascinating self-guided walks, catering for all levels of walker, has been prepared by the Island’s Forestry, Amenity and Lands Directorate.

They range in length from one and a half to three hours and will take you off the beaten track, deep into the Island’s picture postcard glens and atmospheric forest settings.  Without doubt, you’ll get to experience some of the Island’s most striking landscapes and be at one with nature.  To assist, each walk is graded as to its degree of difficulty and the type of conditions to be expected.

Glen Walks

Of the many glens which you could select, we would certainly recommend a leisurely 4km walk alongside Ballaglass Manx National Glen, which should take approximately 1 hour. Ballaglass is a haven for wildlife and during late April and early May, it can be seen in its full glory, with thousands of bluebells making it a photographer’s dream.   

Forest Walks

Alternatively, try a more strenuous three hour walk along the Kings Forest, stretching some 10.5 km. The route takes in part of the Millennium Way and the Heritage Trail along the old railway line. Look out for the ravens which are regularly seen perching on the stone walls as you approach the Forest and the kestrels hunting over the grasslands.

An extremely knowledgeable warden patrols the hills, forests and glens under the Directorate’s control and is available to give advice and guidance to anyone using any of these areas, so that they can be enjoyed safely and to their full potential.
