St Kilda National Nature Reserve (NTS)

This remote and spectacular group of islands with the highest (375m) cliffs in Britain, is home to almost a million seabirds, including a quarter of the world's population of gannets

Remote and spectacular, St Kilda lies 41 miles (66 km) west of Benbecula. It has the largest seabird colony in the north-east Atlantic, and is home to almost a million birds, including a quarter of the world's population of gannets. St Kilda also has its own subspecies of wren and field mouse, as well as a wild flock of primitive Soay sheep.Make the trip and you're guaranteed one of the experiences of a lifetime. People lived on Hirta, the main island, until 1930. They depended on the seabirds; puffins were collected for their feathers and meat, young fulmars for oil and young gannets for meat. The only way to get to St Kilda is by boat.
