On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

(Road of the Gulls) Castletown to Port St Mary

The Isle of Man steam railway can be used to return to your starting point for all stages from Douglas to Port Erin. Castletown is the Island’s ancient capital and home to Castle Rushen which is one of Europe’s most finely preserved medieval castles and fortress of the Kings and Lords of Mann. Its origins can be found in the Norse period when Norse Kings fortified a strategic site guarding the entrance to the Silverburn River. Following the coast, there will be plenty of bird life to look out for, including heron and goldeneye so bring a pair of binoculars and a camera! Port St. Mary is a busy harbour for yachts, though other boats also make their home here. Thatched cottages and local shops fill narrow streets near the sea coast making it a beautiful place to finish a fine coastal walk
