A few weeks ago, we took a walk along Ballure Promenade to Port Lewaigue at the beginning of this period of lovely weather. It is part of the Raad-ny-Foillan at the spouth side of Ramsey.

Incidentally, regular visitors to the Island will be pleased to know that progress is being made on the restoration of the pier. It is mainly privately funded and the work is being done by volunteers.

The river in question flows dowjn from Ballure Reservoir which is a beautiful spot on the TT course, from where you can also climb North Barrule. I wonder is the similarity between the two names, coincidence or a quirk of the Manx Language? Perhaps, we have a Manx scholar who can illuminate us?
