    Summer vacation guide: Isles of Scilly

    No matter the level of caution or vigilance you adopt when travelling in and outside the UK, there is always a risk of experiencing an accident on holiday, which could potentially form the foundations of a travel accident compensation claim.

    The best way to minimise the risk of sustaining holiday-related illness and injury is to read a little about your destination of choice before travelling, and prepare yourself for any potential health and safety travel dangers.

    Spotlight on the Isles of Scilly

    Whether you are looking for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life in mainland Britain or you are desperately seeking a walking and climbing adventure escape, the Isles of Scilly boasts many amenities that can appeal to all types of traveller.

    Set in the South West, off the English county of Cornwall, the isles consist of five main populated islands, surrounded by another 140 uninhabited islands.

    If you are unable to visit all five of the main islands, choosing which island to visit can be a challenge, as you decide which best suits your needs for your trip.

    Although St Mary’s is the island that has been most effectively adapted to meet the needs of tourists, the other islands have somewhat of an untouched, rustic charm, offering a more rural base laid against natural areas of beauty for those wishing to explore the stunning countryside.

    Access to the islands is usually by small fixed wing plane to St Mary’s airport, or by ferry. St Mary’s is the only island of the group to have a fixed road network in place, which also boasts bus and taxi services.

    Isle of Scilly sports and activities

    The Isles of Scilly have a surprisingly fascinating sporting history to investigate during your visit, with the local Gig Racing a highlight among locals. Gig racing involves fast rowing boats manned by crews of six, sometimes seven people, racing between the islands.

    The Isles also feature what is reported to be the smallest football league in the world, in which the league’s two clubs, Woolpack Wanderers and Garrison Gunners play against each other 17 times a season, competing for two cups and a league title.

    There is also a nine-hole golf course on St Mary’s, for holidaymakers who like to indulge in some leisurely sporting recreation themselves.

    Travel accident compensation

    If you have experienced a trip, fall or any other accident on holiday, which has caused a travel-related injury or illness, you may be able to claim travel accident compensation for the harm you have suffered.
