Isles of Scilly - AONB
Hills and Valleys of Bryher

Interior Hills and Valleys

Relatively small changes in topography create distinctive, contrasting landscape types in Scilly. They include the unenclosed, gorse covered hills found on many of the Islands, the wooded hills of Tresco and the valleys with pools and marsh found on Tresco and St Mary’s. Originally part of the farming system and especially used for grazing, many of these areas are no longer managed as agricultural land. The hilltops provide important landmarks for shipping.
