Have you experienced an Isles of Scilly accident?
Although considered to be part of Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly are actually not connected to the mainland. With no bridge to connect the two pieces of land, visitors who want to travel to the Isles of Scilly need to do so by boat or by plane or helicopter.
Comprised of five islands, the Isles of Scilly are a popular holiday destination. In addition to catering for tourists and holidaymakers, the islands are also home to over two thousand permanent residents. With a warmer climate than the rest of the mainland and numerous things to do on the islands, the Isles of Scilly are becoming more and more popular each year.
Due to the unique climate and habitat, many people visit the Isles in order to observe the wildlife. Puffins, seals and rare birds have all been seen on the Isles, alongside numerous other mammals. With dedicated walks and trails designed to offer the best vantage points, there is a good chance that you will see rare wildlife whilst on the Isles of Scilly.
In addition to natural attractions, there are also numerous man-made amenities for visitors to enjoy. As well as the numerous hotels and places to stay, the Isles also offer facilities such as golf courses, horse riding centres and even shopping facilities.
Whilst many people do holiday in the Isles of Scilly, it is also a popular place to come for a day trip. Unfortunately, it is possible to suffer an Isles of Scilly accident whilst in the area but these are relatively rare.
