The islands of St. Kilda rise out of the Atlantic ocean some 40 miles west of the Outer Hebrides. A place that beggars belief, with an extraordinary history, dramatic scenery, spectacular seabirds and unique isolation. The largest island is Hirta (occupied for thousands of years until 1930), with Soay and Dun close by. Berneray, with Stac Lee & Stac an Armin, is four miles away to the north-east. St. Kilda is owned by the National Trust for Scotland. It is a National Nature Reserve and World Heritage site - read more on the St. Kilda website.
