Much of Scilly is open to all but there are some areas that we request people do not visit to make space for nature; please respect our wildlife and the restrictions in place.

Their are no "Rights of Way" or "Footpaths" in Scilly; all paths run through someone's Freehold property or tenanted land and as such are permissive.  To find out more take a look at this article previously written for Scilly Now & Then

The map below details where access restrictions are in place for some or all of the year; either for the benefit of breeding seabirds, pupping Atlantic grey seals, or just to give nature a space to thrive without human disturbance. 

Please adhere to these restrictions so that future generations can continue to enjoy the wild nature of Scilly.
