Samson

Samson, Isles of Scilly

Samson, with its unmistakable mammary-shaped twin hills, is the largest of the uninhabited isles, and was the last to be abandoned by impoverished residents in 1855. A short hop from Bryher, here you can witness the eerie remains of 19th-century cottages and explore burial chambers hidden amid the gorse-covered terrain.
