A six-day visit to the Isles of Scilly in April 2013 enabled me to visit all five inhabited islands. The fifth day was spent mainly on a boat trip from Hugh Town into Crow Sound and north through St Helen's Pool to Round Island, followed by a short walk on Bryher, the smallest of the inhabited islands.
