The sun shone and the sea sparkled as the Queen's Baton arrived on Hirta.
The baton bearer, Colin Macleod (organiser of 'Swim to St Kilda' and local charity fundraiser) held the baton high to the applause of the crowd.
There were plenty of opportunities for photographs at the 'International Airport Lounge', for the Baton team, staff and visitors....
After a visit to the street to meet visitors, Colin ran back to the helipad with the baton held aloft.
And before long the baton and its bearer were on their way to Tarbert to continue the journey onwards through Harris and Lewis.
