Directions to the lighthouse

About 12 miles from Douglas: 20-25 mins. Travelling from Douglas follow signs for the Airport.

From the sea terminal turn left at the roundabout and left again at the next. This will take you over a bridge and on to the south quay. Take a right at the roundabout across the bridge and along the quay, straight on at the next and straight on again. You will now be on the Old Castletown road. Stay on the main road and you will come to a large roundabout on the Cooil Road junction. Turn left here and follow the road to Castletown and the south.

Continue past Ronaldsway Airport, straight on at the first roundabout then straight on for about half a mile along A5 towards Castletown. Turn left at the next roundabout. This will take you along Shore Road and join up with the promenade.  At the ‘Stop’ sign on the prom turn left and proceed along the promenade, towards Derbyhaven.  On reaching Derbyhaven turn right towards Langness and Golf Links. A short way ahead the roads fork: take the road to the right, which almost immediately swings left and continue, through the middle of the golf course, along the single track road.

Eventually you will arrive at a public car park to your left. Proceed through the gate, continuing along the private road and over the cattle-grid.  Enter the property through the main gate (for Herring). Proceed along the drive towards the lighthouse and park in the area alongside the white boiler house. If staying in West or East, use the side gate entrance for easier access directly to your cottage door.
