Scilly Walks is run by Dr Katharine Sawyer and offers guided walks, boat trips and slideshows to introduce you to 8000 years of archaeology and history in the Isles of Scilly. There are full day and half day visits to all the inhabited - and several of the uninhabited - islands, led by Katharine or her husband, Chas Wood. We can also provide private guided walks, either general interest or archaeological.

Charges: full-day walks £14.00 adults, £7.00 children; half-day walks £7.00 adults, £3.50 children. Not including boat/bus/taxi fares, if appropriate.

Katharine's 'Scilly through the Ages' slideshow is on Monday evenings in the Methodist Hall, Church Street, Hugh Town, starting at 8.15pm. Admission: £5.00 adults, £2.50 children.


Update for 2021 season

From 12 April 2021 we will offer private guided walks, on St Mary's and the off-islands, for up to 5 people. These will be at the special rate of £100 per walk for a full day and £50 for a half day. These rates do not include boat or taxi fares, admission charges or refreshments. All day and afternoon only walks will be available on all the islands (boating permitting), morning only walks are also available on St Mary's.

From 17 May we will be offering only private walks for up to 10 people on St Mary's and the off-islands, at a rate of £70 for a half day and £140 for a full day. From 21 June we will be offering public walks and hope to be able to lead walks on some of the uninhabited islands.

There will be no walks between 3 June and 19 June inclusive.

At present, there are no plans for slideshows this year.

These details will be updated once further information is available.
