The climate of the Isles of Scilly (England)
The Scilly Isles are situated south of the tip of Cornwall; about 45
kilometers off the coast. The archipelago consists of 140 uninhabited
and 5 inhabited islands: St. Maryís, Tresco, St. Martinís, St. Agnes,
Gugh and Bryher. There are no high-rise buildings, noisy big bill
boards or attraction parks to be found here. The islands are an oasis
of peace and quiet. The scenery is splendid here and one of the main
attractions. The islands are ideal for long walks and for enjoying the
beaches and picture postcard towns. Donít forget to hire a boat that
takes you along the many beautiful islands.

differences in climate. The islands are situated in the warm Gulf
Stream. Average temperatures are much higher than on the main land.

is also responsible for the differences in climate. In the north there
are heather moorlands because of the strong winds. This is very
different from the south, which is situated on the lee side. Walking
