The Isles of Scilly

Sail on an adventure to the Isles of Scilly. Clear water, white sand, stunning anchorages, amazing wildlife – all basking in the warmth of the summer sun.

Thirty miles west from Lands End lie the glorious Isles of Scilly. Always the best adventures of our year and an opportunity not to be missed – what better way can there be to visit Scilly than aboard a Scillonian Pilot Cutter? Our usual itinerary sees us sail not only to the inhabited islands of St Marys, Tresco, Bryher, St Martins and St Agnes but also takes in some wildlife spotting down amongst the Western Rocks and occasionally a restful night in the Eastern Isles around Great Ganilly.

The Isles of Scilly (locals rarely refer to them as the Scilly Isles or Scillies) have fascinating history and a plethora of flora and fauna which combine to make this our very favourite sailing area. Each island has a very different character and there are no marinas to spoil the view – just Amelie Rose rocking gently at anchor as her guests explore a new island every day.

In amongst the islands there’s a ton of wildlife to spot with seals and puffins lounging and flapping around the Western rocks whilst shore-side the Islands are a haven for all manner of exotic birdlife from the stunning Golden Pheasant to the many migratory species that stopover here.

For history lovers there’re prehistoric remains to discover and we have a special place in our hearts for the St Mary’s Museum wherein lies a half model of the AZ – a Scilly Pilot Cutter from which Amelie Rose’s lines are taken. That each trip begins and ends with a passage past maritime legends like the Lizard Peninsula and Land’s End really is the icing on this very moreish cake.

Closer to the Skipper’s heart (or maybe stomach) several of our favourite pubs lie amongst the islands too, and no sail adventure to the Isles of Scilly is complete without a visit to the Turk’s Head on St Agnes, the Fraggle Rock Bar on Bryher or the amazing Seven Stones Inn on St Martins.

That all of this abundance is crammed into such a tiny group of Islands is incredible. It’s also incredibly useful. With the passage there enjoyed (and with the promise of another one ahead) there’s no requirement to spend hours at sea as you slip from one island to the next. A couple of hours a day sees us cross St Mary’s Roads, navigate Crow Sound, dodge between the Western Rocks and weave through the Northern Isles. Each day will bring you a new land to explore, a new story to tell, a new reason to return.
