About the neighbourhood
Glandore Apartments comprise three separate self catering units (Serica, Slippen and Golden Eagle) and are situated in a favoured location at Porthloo (or Porthlow) on the west shore of St. Marys with views across the sea towards Samson, Bryher and Tresco. Porthloo itself is little more than a hamlet of about a dozen houses, mainly surrounding Porthloo Green and facing the sea. The area is about fifteen minutes leisurely walk along the scenic beach path from Hugh Town. On the way, you pass Porthmellon Beach which is one of the most popular family beaches because of its wide expanse of sand and gently sloping beach giving safe paddling and bathing. Porthloo is also home to the spectacular and scenic 9 hole St Marys Golf Club which sits in a commanding position at the top of the hill, overlo... more

Visitors have two choices for travel to the Isles of Scilly. There are scheduled air services (Isles of Scilly Skybus) connecting the islands with Lands End Airport, Newquay Airport and Exeter Airport or, alternatively, the passenger ferry, RMV Scillonian III, which connects the islands with Penzance in Cornwall.

Flights from Lands End to St Marys take about 15 minutes, from Newquay about 35 minutes and from Exeter about 50 minutes. Two types of aircraft are operated by the Isles of Scilly Skybus. One is the de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter seating about 19 passengers and the other is the Britten-Norman Islander seating up to 9 passengers.
