About Elfin Glen

This deep valley glen is separated by the steep wooden slopes of Lhergy Frissel and Claughbane. The site of Claughbane is run mainly as a commercial plantation, though was once also a slate quarry. The landmark of Albert Tower sits on the hill overlooking the glen and was built with slate from the nearby quarry. Much of the woodland is maintained for recreation purposes with walks and paths throughout. Elfin Glen hold mature woodlands and offers good views of Ramsey and the northern plain. For the racing fans, it is near Hairpin Corner on the TT course and sees a fair bit of action throughout the summer racing season.
