Visiting the Isles of Scilly – August 2016

We spoilt ourselves this year with 2 fantastic trips to the stunning Isles of Scilly over the summer.  A trip to Bryher in Mayfollowed by a week based on St Mary’s in August. Started & finished with a mild crossing (thankfully!) on the Scillonian this time. For the week we booked ourselves into a lovely comfy cottage in a sleepy little hideaway called Holy Vale. A good 1/2hrs walk  or an entertaining bus trip into Town.  The weather was stunning & there is nowhere else like Scilly-  a perfect combination!

Hope you enjoy looking through a few personal & landscape images from our trip…. We have already booked again for 2017!
