Scarlett Visitor Centre
Outstanding coastal scenery and spectacular limestone and volcanic rock formations make this an interesting place to visit during your time on the Island.
Scarlett Visitor Centre stands between the Scarlett Quarry – the source of the limestone which helped build Castletown – and the triple limekilns which are located on the shore.
You’ll find maps, diagrams and displays of the area at the visitor centre including information about the complex geology and fossil remains of the Scarlett peninsula and wide array of wildlife you may spot during your visit.
The area is a hotspot for the Island’s feathered community and you’re likely to see shags, cormorants, gulls, oystercatchers and ducks.
Watch out for the stonechats and meadow pipits that dart amongst the rocks in summer and the hawking swallows and martins which are attracted to the quarry lake.
You’ll also find a number of nature trails which lead beyond the visitor centre and offer a chance for you to explore the area on foot and see the limestone pavements and volcanic rocks including the Stack close up.
