Geo-Trips :: The Isles of Scilly (6) - St Martin's

Isles of Scilly

A walk from Higher Town, St Martin's, Tue, 16 Apr 2013 by David Purchase

preceding legThis trip is part of a series.

A six-day visit to the Isles of Scilly in April 2013 enabled me to visit all five inhabited islands. This final day was spent on St Martin's, the inhabited island nearest to the mainland.
