The Calf of Man is a small island at the south western extremity of the Isle of Man from which it is separated by a narrow strait of water known as the Calf Sound. In size it is about one and a half miles long by one mile wide and is just under one square mile in area. It rises to a height of 421 feet. The word Calf derives from the Scandinavian Kalfr and means a small island lying near a larger one.
