Historic Houses


The inspiration for this page is the book Historic Homes of the Isle of Man compiled by J. Kitto and published by Executive Publications Douglas (ISBN 0-9516846-1-2) 1990.

The colour photographs by John Kitto are excellent (some are outstanding) however much of the research was based on notes by Mona Douglas, possibly for Manx Life which carried a series of articles on such houses during the 1970's - her undoubted talents in poetry, prose, song and dance tended to encourage a good tale rather than somewhat more prosaic scholarship.


The following houses are discussed in the book (except those marked +) - any notes on my pages are drawn either from my own research or from more reputable sources. In some cases the buildings are discussed under other headings.
