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.
As much an entertaining armchair read as a practical guide, this is a personal, slow, tour of Cornwall.Experience crashing waves and glorious beaches, wild moorland and wooded valleys, and the quiet and hitherto unsung byways of the Cornish landscape. Take time to savour the outstanding cuisine and seek out the lively arts scene. Interviews with locals - from blacksmiths and bakers to artists and fishermen - paint an intimate picture of the people of the region. Kirsty Fergusson enriches your stay with her local knowledge on where to stay, eat and drink and what to see and do. Tips on where to paddle with the tide up wooded creeks to village pubs, on where to discover lost varieties of Cornish apples and on riding a bike from standing stones to swimming holes, provide an intimate picture of this popular tourist destination.
