Walks from Season Three - Tresco

The small island of Tresco is one of the Isles of Scilly - and has some facsinating heritage and wonderful Caribbean-like beaches - all you'll discover on this short walk.  The route is a linear walk, and finishes at New Grimsby for the boat back to St Mary's.  Check as you come ashore the return ferry is from New Grimsby - if not, you need to walk back to Carn Near.
