We walked up to St Catherine's Oratory from Blackgang and spotted this monument in the distance. The sky was clear and our time was our own, so we decided to carry on. As the oratory is on the highest point of the island, the initial...More

Lovely walk from Blackgang. Stunning views of the western Wight with the Needles and the mainland in the distance. If you enjoy a good walk along the top of a long stretch of downs then this is well worth a visit, especially on a clear...More

Steep climb but worth the amazing views from the top - you can see most of the Island. Fantastic place to be if there's a glorious sunset

We set off early for a circular walk starting at Blackgang Chine, couldn't see the oratory but cloud lifted a bit to see the Hoy Monument in the distance so something to aim for. As you can see not a lot else!
