Why not make Carnwethers your base camp for Walk Scilly week



  

 Walk Scilly 2018 

Walk Scilly is a unique showcase of the special environment of the Isles of Scilly. Did you know for example, Scilly has the highest concentration of prehistoric burial sites in the UK? Or some of the greatest numbers of historic shipwrecks in Europe? Or that it's a mecca for rare migrant bird species?

The Scilly walks series of themed guided walks taking place across the Islands. A variety of local experts lead over 20 walks, on topics such as archaeology and gardens, flora and fauna, castles and cliffs, beaches and birds, bats and boats.

 


There are additional talks and presentations in the evenings, an opening night dinner and dance with some special guests (to be announced!) and a final day charity walk around St Mary's involving as many locals and visitors as possible.


Springtime is also a lovely time to visit, with golden fields of narcissi still in flower. Witness the immense power of the Atlantic on an exhilarating clifftop walk or wonder at the vivid colours evident on many Island beaches and coves.
The majority of the landscape you see is actively maintained by the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust, a charity responsible for the unfarmed land leased to it by the Duchy of Cornwall. Their job is to manage all this land, to preserve and protect the wildlife of the Islands and the sea, and conserve or restore the habitats, landscape and archaeological sites for the benefit and enjoyment of the public.
