A Virtual Tour of Holy Island

Tour Notes

This tour is based on the webmaster's walks around the island over many years. The emphasis is on the natural world more than the island's history, which is well documented elsewhere. While tens of thousands visit the island every year only a small percentage of visitors ever stray beyond the castle or the village.

Should you choose to walk right around the island, make sure you are well equipped to survive the weather as there are few places to shelter. Take careful note of the tide times especially if you are going to walk the Pilgrims Way. Do remember that the tide comes in fast here and some parts of the Pilgrims Way are much closer to the low water mark than the road.
