Isle of Man -
Ramsey is a town in the north of the Isle of Man. It is the
second largest town on the island after Douglas. Its population is
7,309 according to the 2006 census (7,322, 2001 census). It has one
of the biggest harbours on the island, and has a prominent derelict
pier, called the Queen's Pier. It was formerly one of the main
points of communication with Scotland. Ramsey has also been a route
for several invasions by Vikings and Scots.
Ramsey is also known as 'Royal Ramsey' due to royal visits from
Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1847 followed by King Edward VII
and Queen Alexandra in 1907.
Ramsey is in the sunniest area of the Isle of Man, with relatively
low rainfall. This is because Ramsey is in a 'rain shadow' just to
the north of the Manx hills, on the edge of the northern plain of
the island. Any clouds coming from the south-west (the prevailing
wind direction) tend to lose any rain on the hills before they reach
Ramsey. Ramsey is built on sand and has miles of sandy beaches.
