An explorer's guide to the islands of Britain

Over the moon that Islandeering is featured the July issue of Coast Magazine. Most of the issue is in fact dedicated to islands and is a tasty read for fellow islomaniacs.

Does this extract whet your appetite…….?

”Britain is fringed by a constellation of thousands of uninhabited or little-known islands. Islandeering is the ultimate way to explore these retreats, by circumnavigating their outermost land edge and exploring the natural history that’s on offer along the way.

These islands are a celebration of wilderness and wildlife, some with thriving tiny communities that cling to the very edge of our world. Here you’ll find beauty, harmony and life lived according to the rhythm of nature. Seek a trail along their shoreline to discover deserted beaches, secret swims, ancient ruins, whales and dolphin spotting, wild flower gardens and vast colonies of seabirds. For those looking for adventure there are epic tidal crossing, exhilarating cliff top scrambles, sea cave explorations and more.

Let the wind blow through your hair and the thick aroma of ozone and seaweed fill your nostrils this summer and discover Britain’s most secret coastlines”.

In the article I share ten of my favourite islandeering routes – Samson (Isles of Scilly) , Scolt Head (Norfolk), Foulness (Essex), Thorney (Sussex), Ynys Giftan (Gwynedd), Flat Holm (Glamorgan), Ynys Lochtyn (Ceredigion), Holy Isle (Arran), Oronsay (Skye) and South Walls (Orkney).
