This is Katie, the Scilly Bus, a 1948 Austin tour bus, which takes visitors on tours of St Mary’s, the largest island in the Scilly Isles.
The Scilly Isles are situated 28 miles west of Land’s End, Cornwall, England. There are 5 inhabited islands – St Mary’s, St Martin’s, Tresco, Bryher and St Agnes and scores of uninhabited ones.
Katie recently celebrated her 60th birthday!
As you can see, in true Scilly tradition, the Scilly bus driver apparently drives standing up and facing backwards!
