'Sound, Mist and Sea' - The Sound Isle of Man

'Sound, Mist and Sea' - The Sound Isle of Man


Calf Sound is a narrow and often turbulent strait that divides the mainland Isle of Man from the small 618 acre island of the Calf of Man. The word 'calf' derives from the Old Norse word kalfr which means a small island lying next to a larger one. The area of The Sound is dramatic, with a powerful and transcendent sense of isolation and tranquility. The continuous call of sea birds through curtains of mist and the background crash of waves against the jagged rocky contours engenders a profound and immediate sense of place.
