I’ve just finished putting together the details for a photography tour to the Isles of Scilly, a stunning little archipelago sitting in the Atlantic about 30 miles southwest of Land’s End, mainland Britain’s most southwesterly tip.
Spread over five days/four nights the tour will run 14th-18th April 2018, and will be based at the attractive Wingletang guest house on St Mary’s, the Scillies’ main island.
What to expect
Photography highlights will include:
- The islands’ rugged coastal landscapes and seascapes, which include beautiful curving sandy beaches, interspersed with rocky granite outcrops, headlands and islets;
- The abundant marine wildlife, consisting of hundreds of mainly grey seals and thousands of sea birds, particularly shags, razorbills and guillemots, as well as the occasional dolphin, spread mainly across the hundreds of uninhabited islands and especially the wild Western Rocks, the last sentinels of the Scillies, exposed to the full force of the Atlantic;
- The world-famous Abbey Gardens, on the island of Tresco, home to hundreds of species of plant from 80 countries around the world, including Brazil, South Africa, the Canaries and New Zealand. This is a rare opportunity to see sub-tropical plants growing outdoors in the UK, thanks to the Scillies’ mild climate.
