Details

This guidebook to walking on the Scilly Isles includes 11 day walks and 4 boat trips. The walks are between 1.5 and 10 miles long (2.5km and 16km), and explore the larger islands such as Tresco, St Martin's, St Mary's, St Agnes and Bryher as well as smaller islands in the archipelago.

Alongside the walks, which are suitable for walkers of all abilities, are 4 boat trips which explore Annet and the Western Rocks, the Norrard Rocks, St Helens and Tean as well as the Eastern Isles. All routes are illustrated with OS mapping and contain lots of background information on the history, geology and ecology of the islands. There is also practical information on public transport services and accommodation.

With their mild climate and relaxing atmosphere, the Isles make an ideal holiday destination, with stunning scenery, rich bird life and myriad wildflowers. Basking in sunshine, rising green and pleasant from the blue Atlantic Ocean, fringed by rugged cliffs and sandy beaches, they reveal their charms to those who walk the headlands, sail from island to island and take time to observe the sights, sounds and scents of the landscape.
