For the bemused:

The Isles of Scilly (Cornish: Ynysek Syllan) form an archipelago of islands off the southwesternmost tip of Great Britain. Traditionally administered as part of the county of Cornwall, the islands now have their own Council of the Isles of Scilly. They are also designated the Isles of Scilly Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Isn't Scilly where the original Wicker Man film was shot? The last picture link made me wonder about that.

You'd think that people would have had enough of Scilly webcams.
I look around me and I see it isn't so. (Oh,no.)
Some people want to fill the world with Scilly webcams.
What's wrong with that, I'd like to know
Cause here I go
AGAAAAAAAAIIIIINNNN!

Pronounced 'silly', according to my Cornish coworker.

Pretty.

I read "Sicily". Scilly me. But these are quite nice, anyway.

No, it was mostly filmed in Dumfries & Galloway, near Kirckudbright.

It's set pretty much in the furthest north, furthest west part of Scotland though I think. The Scilly Isles are the far south, far west part of the UK.

Lovely part of the world. The gulf stream hits it smack in the face and fetches a lot of the weather with it. Palm trees are unusual just about everywhere here but there.
