Autumn on Scilly: for many, the best time of year to visit. The islands are quieter and as the nights draw in, we’re treated to incredible Scilly sunsets, irresistible island hues, fields of emerging scented narcissi, hedgerows bursting with life and a wealth of birds and wildlife. Days are often still warm and sunny in October, others can be windswept, but whatever the mood on Scilly, around every corner there’s yet another feast for your eyes to enjoy.

So what better way to capture the true essence of Scilly than indulging in a long weekend of walking the islands with knowledgeable guides showing the way?

This is our 5th Walk Scilly Autumn Weekend and once again, it has much to offer. The wildlife is simply spectacular with glorious resident and migrating birds to admire, with seal pups to spot, and Scilly’s bats to seek out. The hedgerows and rock pools are fantastic for foraging walks. Many of our walks will let you discover this special side to Scilly. Alongside, we have some favourites too – a chance to explore Samson and Tean, farm walks, a walk around The Garrison, a Tresco stroll, St. Agnes Top to Toe, and the COSMOS Dark Skies walk on St. Martin’s.

New for this year are some multi-media walks in collaboration with the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust and our own Creative Islands team – including “sonic” walks with sound artist Laura Denning to explore the sonic ecologies of the Isles of Scilly using a range of listening strategies, and immersive flower walks with leading botanical artist Bee Watson which will also involve sketching some Scilly’s beautiful native flora and a paper flower-making workshop.

So come and see Scilly at its best.
