Hugh Town on the Isles of Scilly. A truly wonderful part of the British Isles (Nick Lapthorn)
St Marys harbour, Isles of Scilly.
St Mary's (harbour), Isles of Scilly
The Scilly Isles are geographically very interesting as the northern part of the Isles show evidence of glaciated bedrock - i.e. covered by the last ice sheet, whereas the landscape and landforms around St Mary's and the Isles to the south show only evidence of periglaciation - so the Scilly Isles were really at the limit of the Quaternary glaciations.
Not a guess!! It is Town Beach, St Marys , Isles of Scilly. Spent many happy hours there.DRIVE
This is the harbour at Hugh Town, St Mary's, Isles of Scilly. You have actually used this photo previously, but it is one of my favourite locations so I am not complaining! - Peter Knight
