St Kilda Full Day Tour

The archipelago of St Kilda is the most remote part of the British Isles. When you visit, you will feel like you are on the edge of the world. The islands, with their exceptional cliffs and sea stacs, are rich in wildlife and form the most important seabird breeding station in north-west Europe. St Kilda is one of only 29 locations in the world to be awarded World Heritage Status for both natural and cultural significance and is best known for its wildlife and the extraordinary survival of the local population until their evacuation in 1930.

From Uig Pier on Skye, it's 85 miles to St Kilda - that's around four hours each way. You'll have around four hours on the main island of St Kilda plus time to cruise from Hirta to Boreray and Sea Stacs Lee and An Armin, located around three miles to the north. On arrival to Village Bay, it's a short transfer by zodiac dinghy to the island where you'll be free to explore. The St Kilda Museum, school and church provide a fascinating insight into the old way of life. The remains of the village, the graves and Second World War gun are all open to view. It is a really memorable experience.

For lovers of
History and heritage, wildlife, birdlife, off the beaten track adventures.
