St Kilda

The ultimate Island on the edge. Inhabited for over 1000 years, the last inhabitants left in 1930. An set of exposed outcrops, rising from the Atlantic ocean, 40 miles from the Western Isles. The community which lived here was often cut off for many months by the raging oceans. A trip to St Kilda is never guaranteed, we are also at the mecry of the wind and waves.

Skye

The Misty Isle, has always captivated travellers.

It has the  towering Red and Black Culluins, some of the highest sea cliff in Europe and the iconic spire of Storr. In years gone by we sang the Skye Boat Song, now we go there by a bridge. Despite the easier access, the island still has all its magic and grandeur. Round every corner there is another amazing view.
