    Walking on IoM

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: For midge repellent, nothing beats Avon Skin-so-Soft moisturiser. Apparently used by US and UK armed forces (although probably in unmarked containers!) and recommended by all from Rough Guide to Lily Savage. (Although much of this may be apocryphal.) True or not, it does work - I'll vouch for that.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Gaiters for walking. Even if the weather is fine, knee-high gorse is no fun on unprotected legs

    IoM Motorcycle Races

    Miscellaneous: (Applies to TT, Southern 100, Manx Grand Prix.) You are going to need an FM/AM radio in order to hear the race commentary. There are tannoys at key sites, but around the Island the commentary is broadcast.

    Miscellaneous: The CAMRA good beer guide. Led us to the Albert Hotel, the Rovers Return and Queens hotel in Douglas, and the Creek in Peel. Particularly enjoyed the Queens hotel, good beers and very friendly - visited several times, the quiz on Sunday evenings is challenging!
