What can I see?

The webcam below looks towards Tresco. If you look closely in the middle of Tresco, you can see the top of Watch Hill on the island of Bryher peeking through. On the left side are the twin hills of the uninhabited island of Samson. One the right is South’ard Carn (close to Lowertown Quay and the hotel), with the island of Teän lying just beyond. Between us and Tresco are scattered some of the many tidal rocks, ‘ledges’ and sand bars which are beautiful and treacherous in equal measure. Beyond Tresco is the Atlantic Ocean and eventually America. If you look carefully at the far left side on a clear day you will see the Bishop Rock lighthouse. Obviously there isn't much to see if it is dark!

How do sunset notifications work?

Signup using the form below. If we think conditions are right for a good sunset we will send you an email. This might be a few hours or minutes before sunset. Use the link on the email to come to this page where you can check the sunset time and work out the best time to hopefully enjoy the sunset. We say hopefully as nothing is guaranteed,  rain clouds might gather unexpectedly, fog roll in or we might just make a bad call.
