Leaders Simon Eaves and Duncan Macdonald

7 nights at St Mary’s Hall Hotel.
Day 2-7 Normally 3 days spent exploring the different parts of St Mary’s, the main island and 3 day trips to other islands, usually Tresco, St Agnes and Bryher, but the occurence of unusual birds will determine the exact itinerary
Day 8 Return ferry to Penzance

Weather The weather can vary enomously in the autumn. The Isles of Scilly can be wet and windy, however we may also expect some warm weather as well! During a typical week in this season we would expect to experience mixed sun and showers, with temperatures in the range 10-25ºC.
Walking We shall be on foot most of the day taking medium length walks between stops on easy paths and roads over even ground, but on occasion we may walk on slightly rough coastal paths. We shall cover an overall distance of about 3 to 4 miles during the day. Walking boots are recommended on wet days, with trainers being fine when the weather is dry. Don’t bring wellingtons – it’s unlikely to be muddy and in most places they are unsuitable. Collapsible telescopic/walking poles could be useful for this trip.
Meals All included from lunch on Day 1 to lunch on Day 8
Insects Biting insects are unlikely to be a problem
Accom Double, twin and single rooms all ensuite
Boats We shall take short boat trips to the smaller islands from St Mary’s
Group 12
