St Kilda: Island on the Edge of the World

 

Whatever he studies, the future observer of St Kilda will be haunted the rest of his life by the place and tantalised by the impossibility of describing it to those who have not seen it.

James Fisher 1947

St Kilda is the UK’s only dual UNESCO World Heritage site. Its fascination lies in the combination of spectacular natural phenomena linked to the tangible atmosphere of the remains of human settlement. Braving the weather to sail to the ‘islands at the edge of the world’ is the experience of a lifetime.
