Tucked off Cornwall's coast, Scilly basks in the warmth of the Atlantic, creating a climate milder than most of the UK. Scilly flourishes with a wonderful array of wildlife; puffins, seals, Scilly bees, rare dragonflies, and seabirds such as shags and guillemots. Wildlife outpopulate the humans; the island boasts a year-round population of only about 150 souls. Tresco is the second largest of the islands and is still owned by one family. Remains of the original 13th century priory can still be found in parts of the Tresco Abbey Gardens.
