About St. Kilda

A British Isles gem that's often included on Outer Hebrides cruise itineraries, St. Kilda is the Scottish destination of your dreams. Expect to see sweeping ocean views, dramatic landscapes, ancient ruins, sky-high sea cliffs and rare bird species on this remote island.

St. Kilda itself is an archipelago, encompassing Hirta, Dun, Soay and Boreray. For wildlife watchers, there's much to see, including one of the largest seabird colonies in the Atlantic and even an ancient breed of sheep.

St. Kilda is a UNESCO World Heritage site and there are no overnight accommodations here (although visitors may camp).
