We visited St. Kilda in August 2017 and were fascinated by the stories about the original inhabitants. The cleits, the hunting of birds and eggs, the sheep and the views of the cliffs, islands and stacks made St. Kilda a highlight of our trip to Scotland.

It might be better to post no pictures at all instead of these stamp like minithumbnails.
Very dissapointing, i must say.

Summer of 1993 sailing with Captain George Rich on sy-Fiona out of Oban Scotland with fair winds and warm weather to St. Kilda. The sea state permitted us to anchor in Village Bay for two 2 days.
Some years later my wife and I tried to land in Village Bay on our sy-RobinLeigh unsuccessfully. The seas were crashing on the St. Kilda mountain high. Still on our list.
And still thinking of St. Kilda!

Hi, I am very interested in the supernatural and the occult, I am wondering if there are any good spooky stories from St Kilda, for examples werewolves etc...
Happy Halloween.

Such an intriguing place, I finally had the chance to visit and it literally felt like the edge of the world! Amazing considering the various flat earth theories that are around.

Finally visited St Kilda on 14th August 2017 ...
A damp and misty day added to the atmosphere. St Kilda did not disappoint is a place that words cannot describe.

I visited this beautiful reserve a few years ago to admire the scenery and the native birds, and me and my few friends were astonished by the lovely atmosphere this remote archipelago.
Such a nice place to birdwatch and enjoy being in the middle of the ocean, just you and the sea..

Thank you very much!

Visiting St.Kilda…
The vast majority of earths inhabitants have never heard of it. A number of people dream about going there, some even put it on their bucket list, but even fewer actually get there.
I was one of the latter ones, and I do not regret a single moment. Such a wonderful place it is. Not to mention the ‘given days’ we had with regard to the weather.
Thanks Susan, Angela, Vivi and all the others for our great 3 day stay ! You will be in our minds for quite some time :)

Note: Texting the weather gods helps; I did :)

We camped on St. Kilda from 10 to 12 July and could never have dreamt to experience its beauty in such sunny and dry weather conditions. Each day was a given one. Our intended ham radio operation was a success. Special thanks to the people of the NTS and the good work they are doing.

Hi. I have noticed a few comments regarding dogs visiting St Kilda and I am yet unclear. Is it illegal to bring dogs onto the island?
EDITOR: It is not illegal to bring dogs onto St Kilda. The National Trust for Scotland request that dogs are not brought ashore on the basis that they pose an unacceptable risk to the fragile ecosystem of the islands. Visitors are therefore requested not to bring dogs (including assistance dogs) and other pets onto the islands. As elsewhere in Scotland, all visitors should abide by the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

Could someone tell me why the number of working parties has been reduced from 6 to 2 per year? Surely the amount of work has not reduced, it seems such a shame that people with a passion for the islands have less of a chance of living on the island than was previously the case.
EDITOR: The number of work parties on St Kilda reflects the work load of maintenance and repair: 2 or 3 a year allows the conservation programme to be achieved.

Hi. I would like to know if it is allowed to bring a well behaved dog onto st Kilda with me as company for my planned six week wild camp on the island? I would also like to know what welfare facilities you provide?
Yours kindly.

Dear sirs,
