The Isles of Scilly lie some 28 miles to the West of Lands End.
Cut off from the clamour of life on the mainland, their granite rocks rise through the waters of the Atlantic, revealing miles of white sandy beaches.
Seals and puffins are often sighted around the islands. Sheltered field of flowers and purple moorland provide cover for both land and sea birds.
Samson at Mount Flagon is on the island of St Mary's between Hugh Town and Porthloo just 75 yards from Porth Thomas beach.
