Peel Castle

Date made: August 1843

Description: "The causeway to Peel Castle is a rather circuitous road, and the impatient antiquary prefers crossing the Nab in one of the little wherries which are constantly on hire; and springing up the worn, iron-clasped steps on the rock, he finds himself at once standing in the grim shadow of the ancient sally-port, whilst a thousand visions of ‘the olden time’, grand, beautiful, or weird, flit across his mind.” (Dr Robert Paterson, Manx Antiquities, 1863, M 02321)

Painting from an album of Manx watercolours by Emily M. Fane, painted when she visited the Island in August 1843.
