The Raad ny Foillan path, Way of the Gull, is a 96-mile coastal footpath around the Isle of Man. Splendid scenery is encountered throughout, from the rugged sea cliffs and mountain moorland in the south, to the glens, beaches and dunes of the north. The route passes sites of historical interest, colourful fishing villages, historic towns and peaceful havens. Walkers will appreciate the Isle of Man's unique character, where the pace of life seems easier and there are no coastal caravan sites to sully the scene. You will enjoy the company of gulls and seals. The extraordinary variety of flora is a joy to behold. The walk is described in easy stages with suggestions for accommodation en route. Two other walks are described - The Millennium Way follows the ancient route of the kings from Ramsey to Castletown, whilst the Herring Way takes a traditional way from Peel to Castletown. These cross the hills of the island's interior and can be combined to give an interesting route. This second edition is fully updated. There has been little change to the coastal oath footpath itself since the first edition, except for a short, though significant re-routing of the path to include an impressive stretch of coastline to Nairbyl. The travel information, accommodation, campsite list and service details have also been brought up to date.
