▪ St Kilda Trips
The archipelago of St Kilda, the remotest part of the British Isles, lies 41 miles (66 kilometres) west of Benbecula. Its islands with their exceptional cliffs and sea stacs form the most important seabird breeding station in north-west Europe. The evacuation of its native population in 1930 brought to a close an extraordinary story of survival. The National Trust for Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and the MoD, work in partnership to further a continuing programme of conservation and research on the islands to ensure the care and protection of this World Heritage Site.
For more information on getting there please visit The National Trust for Scotland website.

 

▪ The Callanish Stones
These ancient stones have an enigmatic, magical quality. Whatever inspired their construction, all agree that visiting the Standing Stones of Calanais
should not to be missed.
