Raad Ny Foillan Coastal Trail

by 26th May 2022

Isle of Man - Footpaths - Raad Ny Foillan


The Raad ny Foillan, or 'Road of the Gull' footpath, is almost 160 km / 100 miles long! It can be walked in 5 days although you may want to allow a bit longer.

The footpath is clearly marked with a gull on a blue sign, and mainly follows the coast of the Island. Explore some of the best coastal walking in the British Isles on cliff footpaths, quiet sandy beaches, wooded glens and farmland as you travel through a whole variety of landscapes. The trail was created to mark the Heritage Year Celebrations in 1986.




Grading: Easy to Strenuous
Distance Approx. 100 miles
Estimated Time: 5 days or 2 - 8 hours a stage (depending on stage split)




The Raad ny Foillan can be split into as many stages as walkers like - from a 4-day very strenuous challenge right through to a more gently-paced 12-day walk. Download the Raad ny Foillan Coastal Footpath Guide which splits the 100 mile walk into 12 manageable sections or cherry-pick the most scenic.
