Get back to nature on an Isle of Man walk

Have you ever tackled the 96 miles Raad Ny Foillan coastal footpath? Maybe you prefer the 6 mile gentle stroll between Port St Mary and Port Erin?

The IOM's countryside continues to bring in tourists from as far away as America, Sweden, Norway and France.

There are many different routes to follow through the Manx countryside but most people have their favourite.
