Your Itinerary As you'd expect on such a holiday, your itinerary is dependent on the prevailing conditions and tides, which makes each departure different and ensures you gain more from the wildlife-spotting opportunities available. Since climbing from boats, negotiating steps and walking uneven terrain may be necessary, it requires a reasonable level of mobility. Your guide will discuss the best things to see and do each day, based around the following activities... l l l A full-day guided walking tour of St Mary's, including Old Town, the Lower Moors Nature Trail and the metal lighthouse at Peninnis Head. A crossing to Tresco for a guided walk and a visit to the world famous sub-tropical gardens. Based in the ruins of a former Benedictine abbey, these are home to 20,000 exotic species including Mexican yukka, New Zealand metrosideros and Chilean wine palm. A day at leisure with plenty to do, from hiring a bike or swimming at the beach to exploring a nature trail. Places of interest on St Mary's include the Isles of Scilly Museum and the unfinished fortress of Harry's Walls.
