Today's walkitcornwall quote

  "In the long term, economic sustainability depends on ecological sustainability."— “America’s Living Oceans”

Of course Paul’s deep knowledge of the region, its flora and its beauties – and not to forget his patience and his humor – have made me feel like it all was too short.  As a result, my eyes and my brain are full of new images and new knowledge.

2019 we went twice and they were both fully booked.

After 18 years of walking in Cornwall I finally added not one but two guided walking holidays on the Isles of Scilly. 8 days and 7 nights with 5 main islands to walk around. Having spent this past April over there for 11 days the Islands sprinkled their magic over me and I am smitten. I did my research and went for two separate weeks in 2019. 12 people in April and 11 in September.

The sub tropical islands have wonderful views, stories, archaeological history and maritime heritage plus the flora and fauna are all very special, especially with the thousands of propagated plants and trees on view in the famous Abbey Gardens on Tresco which we will visit.

We stay overlooking the bay of the main port of Hugh Town on St Mary's and take the boats in the morning to different islands and spend a day on each of the main islands so we see them top to toe.

The Isles of Scilly are full of the stories of legends, shipwrecks and strategic importance and it has the highest amount of burial chambers and antiquities in Western Europe which for the small overall amount of landspace is a phenomenal achievement.

The everchanging weather and colours will mean that you are constantly checking 360 degree views and the night skies when it is clear is awe inspiring with the arm of the Milky Way clearly visible.

I am limited to around 12/14 people for the trips so if you are interested This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Although only 27 miles from the Cornish coast it is another world. Getting there, you can take the three hour boat trip from Penzance, an extremely regular 20 minute plane ride or the new helicopter from a variety of places. I will help with all the permutations and organise how you will get there. All you do is turn up and I, as efver will organise your week. We travel to and from the islands by boat with trips between 15 and 30 minutes to and from the main islands. some days the sea is calm and others not so and the local saying is "there's a sea out there" when a little choppy:-).

Although there are 5 main islands there are only 2200 people who live on the Islands and there are stretches of beaches that will not have another soul on them. A beach to ourselves more often than not as we traverse the coastal paths around the islands.

The walking is graded easy as the highest point is only 51m above sea level. However we do walk between 6 and 10 miles per day and you can go scrambling up a few granite tors or skirt around them as you so wish.

For gardening fans, we also visit the famous Abbey Gardens on Tresco home of thousands of sub tropical plants from around the world.
