Spring arrives sooner on the Isles of Scilly than anywhere else in the UK, and we’ve teamed up with Isles of Scilly Travel to give one lucky gransnetter the chance to see for themselves. To celebrate their 100th anniversary, you could win two Fly + Sail tickets to the islands worth nearly £300.
The Isles of Scilly lie just 28 miles off the Cornish coast. There are five inhabited Islands; St. Mary’s, Tresco, St. Martin’s, Bryher and St. Agnes, along with many more uninhabited isles and rocky outcrops all surrounded by clear turquoise waters warmed by the Gulf Stream just waiting for you to explore.
In spring migrating birds arrive sooner and flowers bloom earlier. The evenings stay lighter for much longer giving you more hours of sunshine to enjoy outside, hopping between islands and exploring the hidden beaches; spotting flowers and wildlife and enjoying the local way of life.
The popular Fly+ Sail ticket gives you the chance to experience both Skybus and the Scillonian III and offers you a truly memorable start and end to your Scilly adventure.
You’ll fly out to the Isles of Scilly from Land’s End airport in one of their 19-seater planes. Along the way you will be treated to a birds eye view of the stunning Cornish coastline that will have you wishing the flight was longer.
Returning from the islands you’ll sail back to Penzance. It’s a relaxing way to end your trip, looking out for sea life and spotting some of Cornwall’s iconic landmarks.
So, if you’re bored of the dark winter nights, this competition is for you, giving you and a friend the chance to escape winter and go to meet the spring on the islands where it arrives first.
As well as our usual T&Cs, there are also these additional terms and conditions for this competition:
