Some more aerial shots from the North Laxey Mines but with annotations.  These are based on information gleaned from Andrew Scarffe's excellent 'Great Laxey Mine' book, the Laxey Mines Research Group website and a couple of other sources, but are purely my take on how things were arranged and connected on the surface, so are in no way to taken as accurate! (But I hope they are reasonable).

29th July
In the hills above Ballaugh and Sulby Glen, an area that was extensively farmed at one time with numerous 'Tholtans' or ruined farms dotting the hillsides.  These days it's mainly hill sheep farming with areas of commercial forestry and bracken and gorse taking over the land.  I've taken a particular look at the tholtan of Killabrega above Sulby Glen, probably named after a Keeil dedicated to Breaga, but there seems to be no trace of it now.  It was inhabited until the 1940s.    DJI Phantom 4 Pro
Finishing with some scrollable panoramas taken from both locations.
