Hello! My partner and I are very interested in joining the work party in 2019. I can see there isn't much information available at the moment, so I was wondering if there is an email address that we can write to in order to ask a couple of questions.
EDITOR: Applications for 2019 will be opened in November 2018. Watch the Visiting St Kilda/Work Parties page for more details. For specific questions, please try:

O' what a lovely website about a wonderful place.
Learned so much, especially from the ranger reports.
I do hope to be able to visit.
Now how do I apply for the work party?

I think that is a great programme you run.
So I would absolutely love to work there.

Great site.
Amazing photos.
You only live once as my grandchildren would say.

Further to my previous email, I just found the name of the kind ranger who helped us when we were in such need on Sunday 20th May on another page. I do not remember whether we were able to thank you properly at the time.
Thank you very much John

EDITOR: Thanks very much for your kind words about our Ranger John Sikorski, who was only too pleased to have been able to help.

My husband and I (both retired) visited Hirta Village Bay on Sunday 20th May 2018 with Sea Harris. It was a very rough crossing during which we were thrown about and were extremely sea sick. On landing at Village Bay on Hirta, my husband was still being sick and I was very shaken; we were met by the NT Ranger, who took us with others from the boat to the rest room and was so kind to us. We were dehydrated, cold and weak and he brought us tea, blankets and even a hot water bottle. He even sent for a nurse who supplied us with much needed sea sick tablets for the return journey. We stayed in the rest room for more than an hour until we were sufficiently recovered to go outside. We want to sincerely thank the wonderful caring staff who helped us through this very unpleasant experience. Without them we would have been in a miserable condition and completely unable to walk around this very special place. We hope to return to the island again in better weather.
Thank you

Very disappointed with the lack of posts from the ranger this year, is there a reason for this?

Hello I visited the Island in the early 80's when the Army was still there.

Can you tell is there still a centre crossing painted on the road near the top of the highest hill.

We arrived by ship ii Village bay.

Regards John. I served in the Army for 35 years.

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!

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!
