  • The Scilly Isles: life off the Cornish coast – in pictures - 21 March 2017
    "The Isles of Scilly are an archipelago of five main inhabited islands located 28 miles off the Cornish peninsula, making them the southernmost part of the UK. The Scillies have a population of just over 2,200 and most of the real estate is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall.The climate is much warmer than mainland Britain giving rise to the tourist industry, which accounts for 85% of the islands’ income, with guests arriving by small plane from Cornwall or passenger ferry from Penzance."
