Appletree Bay, Isles of Scilly

Situated 28 miles south west of Lands End, the Isles of Scilly are renowned for their beautiful scenery, seabirds and flowers. There are well over 100 islands in the archipelago of which just 5, including Tresco, are inhabited. Wind, tide, and countless granite rocks and ledges can conspire to make Scilly difficult to get to, and even harder to navigate.
