    The Sprial Stone

    by Ellie22 Written Mar 17, 2014

    The Spiral Stone is a boulder rock decorated with spiral patterns and is believed to be from the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age. The site is by a house in Ballaragh, near to Laxey.

    The stone is located along the B11, past King Orry's Grave and on the way to Dhoon Glen, so if youre visiting either of these then you could have a quick visit. While not exactly captivating or exciting, it may be interesting to those, particularity anyone especially interested in the Neolithic or Bronze ages.

    Take a glen walk

    by Ellie22 Written Mar 12, 2014

    Molly Quirk's Glen, Bibaloe Glen and Groudle Glen are all joined together and make for a fantastic woodland walk.

    Molly Quirk's Glen is a narrow woodland glen following the Groudle River. It has a road bridge at each end, with the lower end marked by the Whitebridge under which a walkway continues in to Groudle Glen. At the other end of the glen is the Little Mill Bridge, and the remnants of the Old Mill can be seen on the opposite side of the road. Also joined to Molly Quirk's glen is Bibaloe Glen/Walk, a streamside pathway.

    These three glens are ideal for a peaceful walk through fabulous scenery and after your walk you can stop at the tearooms in Groudle Glen for refreshments.
