Description

St Kilda is an isolated volcanic archipelago situated 40 miles west-northwest of North Uist in the North Atlantic Ocean. It contains the westernmost islands of the Outer Hebrides whose sea cliffs are the highest in the United Kingdom.

The islands are home to many endangered species of birds, especially puffins and gannets. Uninhabited since 1930 it bears the evidence of more than 2,000 years of human occupation in the extreme conditions prevalent in the Hebrides.
