Sky Hill, Ramsey, Isle of Man

                            Skywatch sunset


Sky Hill overlooks the town of Ramsey, Isle of Man. This image was taken on a walkway adjourning Ballure Road and the Mountain Road, the road leaving the town to head to Douglas, the island Capital. The Hill gets its name from the Battle that took place there in 1079 between the invading Vikings and Manx people. Another iconic place in the small town I live.  Further reading about the Battle of Sky Hill can be found here.
