Scilly's Nature Keeping Scilly Special Making Space for Nature 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.
