Subjects : St. Kilda is a small and remote archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic, consisting of four small islands: Hirta (the largest), Soay, Boreray and Dun.Si is the only good UNESCO to have received double recognition, both for the environmental and cultural value. The island was inhabited until 1930 and you can walk and photograph what is left of the typical village with stone houses and thatched roofs. Its cliffs are the highest in the United Kingdom and you can reach them on foot enjoying a beautiful view from the top of the archipelago and the village below. On the island it is possible to photograph numerous species of seabirds: the BASSAA, Puffins di mare, Fulmars.

Recommended equipment : Wide angle or zoom handyman to photograph the village and the archipelago from above. Telephoto or medium tele to photograph seabirds nesting on the cliffs.

Best months : Definitely late spring/early summer since you can watch the nesting of seabirds.

How to get there : The archipelago lies about 40 nautical miles off the coast of the Outer Hebrides and takes about 2.5 hours of sailing to reach it. There are several daily boat trips from the Hebrides: from Harris, Lewis and Skye. Here you can find the link of companies: http://www.kilda.org.uk/charterboats.htm #. WzdYI9gzai4

Visits : The archipelago is owned by the National Trust of Scotland. It is provided a landing fee that you pay along with the ticket of the boat during the tour booking.

Notes : As a natural reserve, you need to bring water and food into your backpack. There are no refreshment points on the island. Trips are made only if the weather and navigation conditions allow it. For this reason the companies that carry out the daily excursions usually ask for a window of availability of 2 days during the booking of the excursion.
