Down there in the distance, along the coast, is the town I blog from, Ramsey, Isle of Man. This is part way up the long walk to the top of Skyhill, through the Plantation.
Skyhill is on the outskirts of Ramsey. A good place to view the town from was established in 1948 and replanted in 1965. Covering an area of 54 hectares it's a lot of walking and at one time home to a pony trekking centre
Skyhill itself was the scene of a battle (of Skyhill) in 1079 between Godred Croven, Norse and King Fingal Manx, Croven hid some of his men in the woods of Skyhill and ambushed the Manx. Unable to escpae escape, the Manx surrendered and Godred proclaimed himself King of Mann.
See post below for the view of Skyhill from the town.
