This tiny "abandoned" island chain between Scotland and the U.S. is the remotest part of the British Isles. It takes money and sheer will to get there - it's 4 hours one way by small boat and the water is the choppiest I've experienced. But...More

What a great place to visit. The remoteness has to be experienced to be believed. You'll get 4 hours on the island and then a trip to the sea stacks to see the bird life. If you've been to north Berwick it's very similar but...More

Spent four nights on Saint Kilda with Marcus Macadam Photography. One of the best experiences I have had, and well worth the journey from Australia. The history of the village and the wildlife, birds etc. make this a truly magical place to photograph. We travelled...More

Amazing day, left from Leverburgh in Harris. Not a cloud in the sky. Just over 3 hours later, climbing up to the Gap above the village. Great walk around the caldera. Needed the beer provided by the boat, then home. One off my bucket list.

The only accommodation on St Kilda is where the National Trust for Scotland has made some of the cottages habitable. To stay or work there you need to contact the NTS.
