The Garden
There are two areas around the bungalow where guests can sit out on a nice day or to rest weary legs at the end of a day of walking and sightseeing.

One is at the front where two seats are available and another is at the rear of the bungalow where there is a table and chairs on our small decked area and a two seater bench on the lower grass area.

St Mary's also has a very popular spot - a community garden called Carreg Dhu close to the centre of the island and mix this with a lovely walk through Holy Vale will brighten any garden enthusiasts day. All only 20-30 minutes walk from Colossus.

Throughout the year the islands have many wonderful wild flowers to seek out and identify.
Currently, I am gathering/building a digital database of photographs so that you can ask me to look up any wild flowers you have spotted and not been able to identify.
