A sailing trip to the isolated archipelago of St Kilda (2016), often referred to as ‘The Edge of the World,’ the westernmost islands of the Outer Hebrides situated just under 100 miles from the Scottish mainland. Setting port on Village Bay to begin a hike on foot on top of Hirta’s sea cliffs, home to the highest in the county and to the largest concentration of the Gannet seabird in the world which can be commonly found soaring the overhead skies. Accompanied also by a close presence of the tame Soay Sheep - Scandinavian for ‘Island Sheep’ and perhaps the most primitive extant form of domestic sheep. Fnally, sailing past Stac an Armin, Stac lee and Boreray, the smallest Scottish island to have a summit over one thousand feet.
