You can win a piece of this unspoilt paradise with a three- night break for two on the island of St Mary’s, courtesy of Mincarlo guest house and Adventure Scilly.

At Mincarlo, you can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and a warm welcome, with breathtaking views.

minutes and is a unique way to visit this special destination.
