Cashtal yn Ard
Port Erin Castle
The Isle of Man, set in the Irish Sea halfway between England and Ireland, is a place completely unlike anywhere else. It has it's own language, Manx; it's own parliament, the Tynwald - the oldest continuous parliament in the World; the cats have no tails; even the sheep have four horns!
Amongst its Castles are two real crackers - Castle Rushen and Peel. In true form the Manx refer to some of their prehistoric burial chambers as Cashtals (Castles), the best preserved of which is Cashtal yn Ard (Castle of the Heights).
From Snae Fell in the centre of the Island you can see 7 kingdoms - The kingdom of Ireland, The kingdom of Scotland, the kingdom of Wales, the kingdom of England, the kingdom of Man, the kingdom of the Sea and the kingdom of Heaven. On a clear day anyway!
