There’s something romantic about islands – the escape from the rest of the world, the proximity to the sea – and we want to hear about your favourite in the UK. Whether it’s a rugged Scottish isle or a golden-sanded gem in the Isles of Scilly, tell us why you love it: the beaches, the wildlife, sense of isolation, maybe just the thrill of getting there …
If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
Keep your tip to about 100 words
The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on 13 July at 9am BST
