ians on tresco....

st martins is a bigger island with stunning beaches right round, has a campsite right by the beach and a hotel at the west end with moorings and a quay.
the tide runs quite hard through here and its deep.
The campsite beach dries right out so if your prepared to anchor up and plan your trips upto 2 hours either side of low water then this is reasonably safe...only southerly winds here blow straight onshore and cause some chop.
st martins has a pub but it doesnt get the best reviews...but the island itsself is stunning.
bryher is smaller , has a small pub/restaurant and the hell bay hotel on the west side.
Tresco channel is fairly sheltered from all directions, but southerly can be unpleasant if fresh and as st martins campsite beach you can use tresco channel till 2 hours before LW and 2 hours after (as a guide.... but 1 1/2 hours if your brave)
there are moorings on both the bryher side and tresco side, tresco estate own theirs, and i think bryher boatyard own the ones off bryher.
fuel is 1.49 / litre on st marys ....the fuel berth now has pumped petrol so its easier than can filling and lugging but its not cheap.

i live on st marys

Might be coming over with my lovely wife (and Labrador) soon - she has to be over on St Mary's for work on a Monday morning so we thought we would make a weekend of it - any recommendations for a dog friendly hotel / nice B + B please? Also where to eat,
