Geocache Description:

Snaefell is the highest point on the Isle of Man, boasting a view of "six kingdoms"! The cache is near the 621m (2036 feet) summit, but is easy to reach - particularly if the Mountain Railway is used. The grading assumes you've used the railway, but add an extra half star to difficulty/terrain if you park at The Bungalow and walk up (which adds 0.8 miles (1.3Km) each way and 700 feet (200m)of ascent).

If you're lucky, the views are magnificent from here. The immediate landscape is spoilt by radio masts, but the vista is still immense. The "kingdoms" are England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Mann and (for those whose eyes are clear of hate and full of love), the Kingdom of God.

The original cache contents included Crags TB, a hand-painted wooden egg, a Sights Of Britain collectors' Pin, a French Parcs et Jardins pin, a Welsh thermometer, a Geocaching pencil and a weird cactus man.
