    Guests to wear appropriate clothing and comfortable walking shoes with non-slip treads

Explore one of the British Isle’s most wild and remote destinations. Abandoned since 1930, St Kilda was once home to a small population, and the remains of the settlement still stands.

Disembark the expedition boats and walk down the small main street, before ex- ploring the hillsides that overlook the village. Sea birds including petrels, gannets, puffins and fulmars make their homes along the craggy cliffs, while wild sheep roam the interior.

The amount of walking is up to guests own discretion but you can expect to encounter un- even and grassy terrain as well as some inclines. Guests may be asked to sanitize their shoes at designated stations before and after visiting the island.
