St Agnes

Isles of Scilly

The rugged St Agnes is the UK’s most south-westerly outpost, beyond which the Western Isles peter out into 3,000 miles of Atlantic ocean. Though countless ships have foundered on rocky spits jutting from its exposed western shores, the island’s inner character is picture-perfect, with quaint stone cottages, tropical foliage, tea gardens and excellent homemade ice cream at Troytown Farm. Not entirely isolated in its location, St Agnes is joined to the island of Gugh by a sandy causeway that bares itself as the ocean ebbs, creating a sheltered tongue of water inviting to bathers.
