The Isle of Man – Day Five

Although today dawned very foggy we stuck with our plan and drove through the fog across the hills to Douglas. We got on a tram on the Manx Electric Railway to the end of the line at Ramsey, 17 miles of stunning scenery.

After a light lunch at Ramsey we got the tram back to Laxey, roughly half way back.

At Laxey we got the Snaefell Mountain Railway to the highest point on the island.

We passed the Laxey Wheel, the largest water wheel in the world.

We passed a lead mine
Back on the Manx Electric Railway we headed back to Douglas.
We returned to our car and drove back to Peel ….
… for a walk along the beach.

It turned out to be a beautiful day after a cold and misty start at 13°, ending up a sunny and warm 24°.

More to come …
