Glen Wyllin  the Isle of Man

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Glen Wyllin like this:

GLEN-WYLLIN, a deep narrow vale, traversed by a stream, in Kirkmichel parish, Isle of Man. The stream rises on Slieu-Ny-Fraughane; and pursues a sinuous course of about 3½ miles north-westward to the sea, in the vicinity of Kirkmichel village. The vale has in its upper part a pretty hamlet, embowered in wood; and enjoys the repute of being the Montpellier of the Isle of Man.
