Islands | Lindisfarne/Holy Island

Lindisfarne - holy island and a sanctuary for wildlife

Lindisfarne or Holy Island is a place that really does live up to its billing in the brochures.

It's an atmospheric landscape of mud flats, sand dunes and salt marshes which is reached by a narrow causeway which is flooded at high tide.

Anglesey sits off the north coast of Wales, and sports many nature reserves and wildlife attractions.

Monach Isles

The Monach Islands are beautiful, remote and inaccessible... and one of the best places in the world to watch seals.

"Islands are great places to spot wildlife.


"This is the season when Grey Seals come ashore on remote islands and coastlines to give birth to pups covered in white fluffy fur.

"It's also a great time of year for rock pooling and watching birds. So come on, what are you waiting for?"
