After arriving on the Scillonian, settling at the Bell Rock Hotel and having some lunch, I did my first discovery walk of St Mary's around the Garrison peninsula, very easy, short and safe stroll with beautiful views, and a few batteries to visit.

Every time we visit Scilly we walk the Garrison, usually many times.

Cannons and things to climb at regular intervals to keep the kids happy.

There is also a pirate ship play park at the top of the hill - always good fun!

Lovely morning spent admiring the views from along the coastline, enjoying the sunshine and generally taking in everything

A lovely walk and the walls have been very well preserved. Good informative notice boards placed around the walls. Sensitively restored.
