archipelago of St Kilda, the remotest part of the British Isles,
lies 41 miles (66 kilometres)
west of Benbecula in Scotland's Outer Hebrides. Its islands with
cliffs and sea stacs, form the most important seabird breeding
north-west Europe. The
evacuation of its native population in 1930
brought to a close an extraordinary story of survival.
This site tells that story and also explains
activities taking place today in this special place.
