Maughold Head and Gob ny Rona
A wonderful place for a coastal walk with high sea views, Maughold Head has an Iron Age fort at its summit. In the 5th & 6th centuries, iron ore was taken from here for smelting. A monastery also once existed on the windy cliff top. Colonies of seabirds such as Razorbills, Guillemots, Kittiwakes, Fulmars and Shags nest amongst the cliffs.
The ‘cross shelter’ in Maughold churchyard is nearby.
Enjoy impressive views of Ramsey from the coastal footpath at Gob ny Rona, a small peninsula of heath and low cliffs.
