Calf of Man

Description: The Calf of Man lies 0.5 kilometres off the southern tip of the Isle of Man (NGR 21600 46550). Brown's Popular Guide to the Isle of Man of 1876 says, "Chief among the excursions from Port St. Mary is one to the Calf and the Chickens Rock Lighthouse -an excursion which, from the delightful sail past the wild and romantic coast south of St. Mary, the peculiar character of the scenery on the Calf, and the instructive interest of the Chickens Rock Lighthouse, every visitor to the south ought to make, if possible. As, however, this excursion can only be made in calm weather, owing to the boisterous character of the sea in the neighbourhood of the Calf, it will be necessary to select a day for the purpose."
