Lhiatte ny Beinnee

Lhiatte ny Beinnee is the reason my list of hills is those over 300m rather than over 1000ft. At 988ft but 301m this fine hill wouldn’t have made it in to the list otherwise.

I decided to climb it from sea level, Fleshwick Bay being a stunning location for a start.

From the small car park area I crossed a small bridge and climbed steeply along the Raad  ny Foillan, keeping towards the cliffs where possible. The views back to Bradda Head and the Calf were stunning in the winter sun.

There are various paths to the right which lead to the many cairns on the south easter side of the hill, I kept to the left but decided to visit some of these on the way back.

The top of the hill is flat moorland dropping steeply to the sea on the west.

I was soon at the cairn where I sheltered in it’s lee. The view north to last week’s walk over Cronk ny Arrey Laa and South Barrule was clear and dramatic.

The sensible thing to do from here is to follow the path over Gob ny Beinn and descend steeply to the Slock and then follow the greenway back towards Surby. I wandered over the top of the hill visiting a series of quartz cairns before picking up the greenway.

This track turns into a lane past some houses. Once in Surby I kept straight on down to a lane to pick up ‘The Rocky Road’ and followed this back to Fleshwick and the car.

 

So there we go, a short walk of just under 8km in two hours bring to the end this little project with all 33 hills climb again. There may well be more posts form walks On Manx Hills as and when I find other interesting ways up them but maybe not as regularly.

Get out and climb some hills!
