The island of Samson

Samson is one of the best known of the uninhabited islands and has a wealth of interest. It has exceptional flora and fauna, amazing archaeology and its history is coloured by ledgend; once inhabited and then abandoned, it is still haunted by its past.

Samson is a pleasure to visit and there are boats and guided walks between April and October but this is tide and weather dependent.

During the bird breeding season we fence off an area of North Hill to minimise disturbance to terns. Please do keep out of this area as just one incident can cause terns to abandon their nests.
