Dinghy cruising in the Scilly Islands
"There are about 50 islands in the Scillies group, if you include the tiny uninhabited ones. The largest island is St Mary's which is about two and a half miles across. This is significantly larger than any of the other islands giving it a rather different character. There is a range of shops at Hugh town on St Mary's and some of the roads are as wide and busy as you might find in rural mainland Cornwall. Apart from St Mary's, there are four other inhabited islands: St Agnes, Bryher, Tresco and St. Martin's. Gugh is also inhabited but is really an appendix to At Agnes being a separate island only at high tide. These four islands are typically a mile or so across. Each of the four has one post office cum general store, one pub, one tiny school with perhaps four or five pupils, one camp site and one or two teashops or restaurants."
