Recently spotted off the Isles of Scilly, the beautiful Golowan Mermaid will be shining up her scales and embellishing her tail to return to Golowan for the ‘All at Sea’ celebrations…well, she is a mermaid after all!!

The Golowan Mermaid may be seen on the rocks around Mount’s Bay when she swims to our shores to be with us throughout the whole of Golowan up to and including the final weekend of Mazey and Quay Fair Days.
