Walking on the Isle of Man: 40 Walks around the Island, Terry Marsh - The scope for walking on the Isle of Man is considerable. Being an island, and a smallish one at that, many walks touch upon the coastline at some point, and it is probably true to say that on every walk in this book you can see the sea at some stage, although each of the 40 walks has its own very distinctive flavour. This guide provides walkers with all the necessary information to ensure that any visit to the island is well spent. A comprehensive introduction provides information on the Isle of Man in the 21st century and in the past, as well as on the island's flora and fauna and on how to make the most of the walking opportunities. The guide includes information on getting to and around the island and a comprehensive appendix including longer waymarked walks, useful addresses and organizations, bibliography and a glossary of Manx place names and terms. Published June 08. K The Isle of Man Coastal Path: Raad Ny Foillan - The Way of the Gull - The Millenium and Herring Ways, Aileen Evans - The Raad ny Foillan, Way of the Gull, is a 96-mile footpath around the Isle of Man. Splendid scenery is encountered throughout, from the rugged sea cliffs and mountain moorland in the south, to the glens, beaches and dunes of the north. The route passes sites of historical interest, colourful fishing villages, historic towns and peaceful havens. Walkers will appreciate the Isle of Man's unique character, where the pace of life seems easier and there are no coastal caravan sites to sully the scene. You will enjoy the company of gulls and seals. The extraordinary variety of flora is a joy to behold. The walk is described in easy stages with suggestions for accommodation en route. Two other walks are described - The Millennium Way follows the ancient route of the kings from Ramsey to Castletown, whilst the Herring Way takes a traditional way from Peel to Castletown. These cross the hills of the island's interior and can be combined to give an interesting route.  Published June 04.
