In the 20th century, Looe island was owned ( and inhabited ) by two sisters, Babs and Evelyn Atkins, who wrote two books: We Bought An Island ( 1976, ISBN 0-245-52940-3 ) and its sequel Tales From Our Cornish Island ( 1986, ISBN 0-245-54265-5 ).
They chronicle the purchase of the island and what it was like to live there.
Evelyn died in 1997 at the age of 87 ; Babs continued to live on the island until her death in 2004, at the age of 86.
On her death, the island was made a bequest to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust ; it will be preserved as a nature reserve in perpetuity.
