This is a very rewarding walk, we all want to say they’ve climbed a mountain.
We’ll start our walk at Salmon centre in Laxey and make our way past the Laxey Wheel (Lady Isabella) and head up to the ancient village of Agneash, which is mentioned in documents as long ago as 1510. The village itself is very small and quaint and mostly known for its attractive church which was constructed in 1856 (we’ll take a we stop here as we pass).
We will then skirt the valley and head up the Miners track where we’ll meet some juicy climbing until we reach the mountain summit.
We will take some time at the summit which is 2,037 ft above sea level. It’s tall enough that, on a clear day, you can see the so-called “7 Kingdoms of Man” – England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Isle of Man, Heaven, and the Kingdom of Manannán (also known as the sea).
Our transport will be waiting to transport us back to the Salmon Centre were we’ll have a hearty Manx lunch of broth and bonnag cake, with fresh Noa bread.
After your lunch has settled, you’ll settle down onto your mats for an hours deep stretching and relaxation practice with Aoife from Omazing Yoga.
The track is steep and rocky in places. This is a challenging walks in parts and a good level of fitness is required. The route will include some hills and open moorland. Walking boots and suitable clothing are essential.
