Brownsea Island

3 miles (5.5 km)

This circular walk takes you on a tour of the beautiful Brownsea Island off the coast of Poole in Dorset. The island is owned by the National Trust and has a number of delightful paths and tracks for walkers to follow. You will enjoy fabulous views of Poole harbour on the coastal stretches and see red squirrels and peacocks on the inland woodland sections. The island also has a number of bird hides where you can look out for the huge variety of birdlife that visit the island all year round. Also of note is the Baden-Powell Outdoor Centre where you can follow in the footsteps of Lord Baden-Powell and the very first Scouts who camped on the island in 1907.
