Glen Maye River


This river flows down from Glen Rushen to the sea near the village of Glen Maye in the west of the island.  The Glen itself lies 4.5 km south of Peel on the A27 coast road.  Parking and public toilets can be found at the top of the beautiful glen walk.  A set of steep steps will lead you past a spectacular waterfall and down to the river.  Downstream of the waterfall, wild brown trout lie shaded by the steep walls of the gorge.  There is also a long stretch of public fishing upstream of the village, where the river runs for almost 2km alongside the Arrasey and Lhargan plantations. Access to this area is from the Glen Rushen Rd that leaves Glen Maye village, limited parking and a picnic area can be found at the end of this road.
