Cashtal yn Ard

The North of the Isle of Man has plenty to offer you during your visit to the Isle of Man. As well as a range of riding schools and outdoor walking locations, the town of Ramsey offers a range of facilities including the island's only bowling alley. If during your trip up north you want to explore the island's history as well then Cashtal yn Ard is a great location to visit.

The "Castle of the Heights", as the name translates, is based on raised land overlooking Maughold and is the largest Neolithic tomb in the British Isles. Dating back to 2000 BC the original stone cairn has since been removed but the larger, still standing, stones create an impressive burial site, possibly originally designed as a communal burial place for high ranking Neolithic families of the area.

To continue to enjoy the outdoors after you trip to the site there are plenty of locations nearby including the highly popular Curraghs Wildlife Park where, if the weather takes a turn for the worse, you can stop for a bite to eat with the family until it passes.
