Gugh, St. Agnes, Isles of Scilly

We say

With just two houses on its shores, Gugh is often referred to as part of St Agnes – to which it is joined via a sandbar at high tide. However, when the sea pours over the bar Gugh is an island in its own right, and as such it retains a more isolated and wilder feel than its neighbour. On a stroll around its heather-strewn slopes you will discover the idyllic Dropnose Porth, the Old Man of Gugh standing stone and the 4,000-year-old Obadiah’s Barrow.
