Snaefell is the highest mountain and the only summit higher than 2,000 feet (610 m) on the Isle of Man, generally noted as 2,034 feet (621 m) above sea level.

At the summit, it is said one can see seven kingdoms: those of Mann, Scotland, England, Ireland, wales, Heaven and Neptune.

The summit has a railway station and cafe.

You can walk up to the summit or catch the Mountain Railway from Laxey station. There is an option to stop part of the way up and walk the last stretch.

It is well worth remembering that this is a mountain and the conditions can be considerably different to those on the coast and so make sure you go with the necessary jumpers. All too often people arrive at the top dressed for the beach and find it too windy and cold to really enjoy.
