The Isles of Scilly (Cornish: Ynysek Syllan) form an archipelago off the southwestern tip of the Cornish peninsula of the British Isles. Traditionally administered as part of the county of Cornwall, the islands have had a unitary authority council since 1889. This council is currently known as the Council of the Isles of Scilly.
The islands are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
