About Glen Mooar

In the centre of the glen are the remains of 'Cabbal Pherick'. An ancient and listed monument from the 8th - 10th century. The site consists of a chapel (Keeill in Manx), burial ground, and priest's cell. Near, but not in the glen, is White Spout (Spooyt Vane in Manx) waterfall. Clearly an attraction to the glen and easily seen from it. Also to note are the many stone pillars, which are the remains of an iron railway viaduct. The line ran from 1879 to 1968 and spanned the valley. The Road of the Gull (Raad Ny Foillan in Manx), a long distance footpath runs by this glen.
