Castletown’s Fairy Trail

Have you visited Balley Cashtal Beg yet? You never know who you might meet!

Balley Cashtal Beg is Manx for Little Castletown, a town within a town.

Collect a trail leaflet from the Town Hall, Railway Station, Bowling Green Cafe, Craftworks studio, or many other local businesses, look for the stars on the maps and keep your eyes peeled. Wherever there’s a star, you’ll find a fairy door somewhere round about. If you’re quick, you might even spot the folk who live there, I’ve met quite a few!

Explore the Ancient Capital of Mann as you search for the bright and colourful doors, which form a permanent trail around town. Check the Facebook page, the Town Hall, and the Market Square noticeboard for details of special events, there’s at least one every school holiday! We have great fun making crafts, playing games and working on community art projects. Often, there’ll be a special challenge to find a new, secret door, or you might find that the little folk have set a puzzle for you to solve!
