Calf Sound

Calf Sound is a body of water which separates the Calf of Man island from the mainland of the Isle of Man. The sound - technically a strait - is about 700 yards in width, and contains the small islet of Kitterland (home to a large colony of seals, up to 30 can be seen on Kitterland on occasion). A visitor centre overlooking the Calf Sound holds multimedia exhibits giving information about the wildlife and history of the area.

Spanish Head

Spanish Head is a promontory on the southwestern coast of the Isle of Man, rising over 100 m from sea level. The island of the Calf of Man lies to the southwest of the head, separated from it by the Calf Sound. The name of the promontory is often thought to arise from the tale of a ship from the Spanish Armada becoming wrecked in the area, though there is no evidence to suggest this.

Calf of Man, sometimes known as the Calf of Mann, is a 618-acre island (almost 1 square mile), off the southwest coast of the Isle of Man. It is separated from the Isle of Man by a narrow stretch of water called the Calf Sound. Like the nearby rocky islets of Chicken Rock and Kitterland, it is part of the parish of Rushen. It has two seasonal inhabitants. The word 'calf' derives from the Old Norse word kalfr which means a small island lying near a larger one.
