I thought St Marys was quiet, people had told me the Scillies were busy, St Martins was almost empty-fantastic! A mile stroll from the ferry brought me to my B&B, which had amazing views over the Bay. Time for a quick explore, stone age cairns, stunning views, hidden bays, yes I would say just right. Dinner fresh fish.... even better!!! The next day a proper explore of the island, fulmars, kittewakes, gulls, waders, huge empty beaches, big skies and eventually a pub! Perfect.
The next day dawned even brighter so off to Tresco, which it must be said is a little busier, with the southern side of the island quite well developed, but there are plenty of hidden bays and amazing views. In fact each island has its own special character but I think I preferred St Agnes and Bryher, both of which seemed least developed and maintained a fantastic wildness with rugged seascapes and delightful bays and beaches-very well worth a visit
