Back in time to Cregneash
Depart the ship and travel via the ‘Plains of Heaven’, a magnificently scenic elevated highway that bisects the island running East to West, and the Southern Hills which offer panoramic views of the south of the island down to Cregneash, your destination today.
Cregneash is the oldest settlement on the Isle of Man, a hamlet of white-washed, stone-walled thatched cottages, just as they were in 1900, a heritage site locked in a time warp. The people living in Cregneash today play an important role in preserving an old and important way of life and village life continues as it has for hundreds of years. Farms are maintained using horse power and much of the livestock roam free. Traditional crafts and trades are practiced and used in everyday life, keeping the past alive. The location has also been used for moviemakers on several occasions, most famously for the acclaimed film ‘Waking Ned’.
