Scilly Information

Scilly is the UK's smallest AONB - Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - but as their website says "..... the islands possess a diversity of scenery that belies their small scale". We couldn't agree more and here are some of our images we have taken over the years.


The islands now have a succession of events that mark out the yearly calendar. Most should be running in 2022. For up-to-date information go to the Isles of Scilly Tourist Information Centre web-site

May Bank Holiday week-end: World Pilot Gig Championships - The BIG event with 1000s of rowers and their friends. Pilot Gigs are rowed by 6 oars and a cox in the open sea.


June 4th & 5th 2022: ÖTILLÖ Swim Run - Incredibly brave (but slightly crazy) people running (in pairs) over open and rocky terrain interspersed with five long swims between the islands. In all about 40 kms (!)

Christmas: Experience a traditional community Christmas of church services, carols in the park and goodwill to everyone.

New Year: Bring your fancy dress to join in the celebrations or head down to the Charity Shop where you are bound to pick up a bargain
