Today's walkitcornwall quote

  "Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time." — Steven Wright

 I just wanted to thank you again for a really lovely week's walking. We could not have been more blessed with the weather, and seeing those glorious beaches and panoramic views without the summer crowds was exceptional.

2019 we went twice and in 2021 once, post pandemic and they were all fully booked.

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 you can 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 limit the number to around 12 people for the trips so if you are interested Questo indirizzo email è protetto dagli spambots. E' necessario abilitare JavaScript per vederlo.

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 ever will organise your week, supplying lunches, tickets to the islands and all the photos i take of 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 2500 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. So fitness and balance is very important.

For gardening fans, you can also visit the famous Abbey Gardens on Tresco home of thousands of sub tropical plants from around the world on our day off. We walk the five islands and you have a day to do what you want.
