New Island is the most southwesterly island of the Falklands, and is about 8 miles long and 1/2 mile wide. The landscape of New Island was much like that of parts of Scotland. The hilly island is wind swept and covered with high brown grass and peat bogs. Like the rest of the Falklands, New Island does not have any native trees, although there are some shrubs and bushes.
Many people think that the Falklands are cold and snow covered. Interestingly, although the Falklands are usually very windy, the islands have a narrow temperature range. The Falklands are about as close to the South Pole as London is to the North Pole, and the climate is temperate year-round. It rarely snows, and when it does, it rarely sticks.
