Castle of the Heights

Castle of the Heights (Cashtal yn Ard) is a well-preserved chambered tomb situated on a hill overlooking the parish of Maughold.

The tomb has been dated to 2000 BC and is one of the best preserved Neolithic monuments on the Isle of Man, although the stone cairn has been stripped away, the large firmly set stones create a dramatic burial site.

It is likely that the tomb was originally a single burial chamber but then expanded to accommodate more members of the community.
