Picture of the week: 28th May

The Isles of Scilly (which is the prefered name, rather than 'Scilly Isles' or 'Scillies') is an archipelago of five inhabited islands and numerous other small rocky islets 28 miles off Lands End - the most South Westerly point of the British Isles. With a total population of just over two thousand, an exceptionally mild climate, and countless golden sandy beaches, Scilly is a beautiful haven of peace and tranquility loved by visitors and locals alike.

Both events were as amazing and inspiring as ever.

The clarity of the water and the ever-changing, azure colours of the seascape never cease to amaze me - even after 20 years of living here. Why not book a trip and see for yourselves? It's easier than you might think to get here (just a 15 minute flight from Lands End) and there's still some June and July accommodation availability on the following page:
