THE TRISKELION WAY is a 36-mile trail – in 7 sections – extending from Rushen Abbey in the south to Maughold in the north, via Peel. It offers the pilgrim varied walking conditions, glorious countryside and coastal views and historically significant places – for example the spectacular Spooyt Vane waterfall, and 9th century Keeill Pheric (Patrick’s chapel)
The Raad Ny Foillan Pilgrimage trail – in 12 sections – largely follows the Way of the Gull, the Island’s coastal path which celebrated 30 years in 2016, and includes the remains of Celtic-Norse keeills (chapels) and carved crosses found on or near the Island’s cliffs, glens and beaches. Completing the whole circuit represents a 5 day challenge of over 100 miles for experienced walkers, but its’ 12 sections allow individual stages to be explored.
Breathtaking views and historically significant places, with their ruins and remains telling the story of those who have gone before, are there for everyone to discover. Crossroads trails guide road users to key faith heritage sites accessible by car, bike or public transport.
