Description: "The castle of Peel, above all the other ancient buildings on the Island, is most worthy of a visit from the curious. It is seated on a huge rock, detached from the mainland by a small creek." (William Bennet, Sketches of the Isle of Man by A Tourist, 1829, M 00896)

Miss Georgina Gore Currie was the niece of Horatio Powys, Bishop of Sodor and Man from 1854 to 1877. Georgina stayed with the Bishop’s family at their residence, Bishopscourt, north of Kirk Michael.
