Beautiful walk

Beautiful walk with family. Large lake full of ducks and the kids loved feeding them then we had a great walk with the dogs. Very pretty.

A nice 30 minute stroll through mature woodland, past a couple of ponds and with the usual folly-type garden features. This glen used to be part of the gardens of the former bishops' palace on the other side of the main A3.

We only discovered this glen last year and it's one of our family's favourites. There is a huge duck pond and the ducks love their bread ! Very pretty walks on a fine day.

Very pleasant walk. Need to go again as it's about 3 years since we went and it could have changed a lot.

Bishopscourt Glen on the Isle of Man is one of the best inland glens to experience. It is relatively level and has a very peaceful setting once you stroll through the gate off of the main road.

The Isle of Man has over 20 historic glens which are great for short walks. Bishopscourt is my favourite, the former private garden of the Bishop of Sodor and Mann and directly opposite Bishopscourt this glen is particularly beautiful when the daffodils are out in Spring. There is no car park so you have to park on the road, be... More
