THE ISLES OF SCILLY :

CARD 34 IN A SERIES OF 50

 
 

THE ISLES OF SCILLY

 
 Although about 50 islands make up the Isles of Scilly, 
45 kms south-west of Land’s End
most of the population lives on the largest, 
St. Mary’s, and only four others are inhabited
Yet these low, granite islands 
have been occupied since prehistoric times 
and are shrouded in folklore and myth
They have been identified with the legendary 
Tin Islands of the Greeks
with the Arthurian land of the Lyonesse– 
even with the lost continent of Atlantis
 
 
An exceptionally mild climate 
enables sub-tropical plants to thrive here 
better than anywhere else in Britain, 
while for the ornithologist there are breeding roseate terns
the rarest in Britain, 
and Manx shearwaters which breed 
nowhere else in Britain.
