Snaefell is the highest mountain and the only summit higher than on the Isle of Man, at 2034ft above sea level. The summit is crowned by a railway station, cafe and several communications masts.ViewsIt is a well-known saying in the Isle of Man that on a clear day six kingdoms can be seen from the top: the Isle of Man, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Heaven.
