A six-day visit to the Isles of Scilly in April 2013 enabled me to visit all five inhabited islands. The second day was spent on St Agnes and the tidal island of Gugh. However the first six images are near The Garrison on St Mary's.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
