Walk Scilly and enjoy the Cornish islands
St Mary's on the Isles of Scilly
The Scilly Walks festival will take place among the wildlife and fauna of Scilly

With its stunning views, cliffs, beaches, and amazing and diverse wildlife it's no wonder the Isles of Scilly has its own walking festival.

The Spring festival, called Walk Scilly is now entering its fourth year, attracting trekkers from all over the UK.

The festival features over 30 guided walks, all of which are graded easy, moderate or hard.

This year there are three new walks, including a walk between the islands.

There are historical, flora & fauna, top-to-toe walks and themed walks such as ghost walks or arts and craft walks. There are also 'roam alone' routes planned to take you off the beaten track where others aren't.

This year 'Walk Scilly' is overlapping with 'The Isles of Scilly Folk Festival', an event designed to celebrate folk music on Scilly and to bring some of the country's finest musicians to play on the islands.

All the walks are guided by professional, knowledgeable guides who will help you get the most from your experience. There will be the opportunity to spend evenings in the company of local experts, and a chance to dine on local produce.

The Isles of Scilly have a special magic all year round, but especially in the Spring, with golden fields of narcissi in flower, and much more.

Walk Scilly takes place between Saturday 27th March 2010- Saturday 3rd April 2010.
