Walking in the Isles of Scilly: Edition 4

Cicerone Press Limited
Free sample

This guidebook to walking on the Scilly Isles at the south-western edge of Britain includes 11 day walks and 4 boat trips, perfect for a fortnight away from it all. The walks are between 2 and 16km long, 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 Teän as well as the Eastern Isles. With their mild climate and relaxing atmosphere, the Isles make an ideal destination for a retreat, 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. 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.
