Off to St Kilda

Our focus for the trip was to go to St Kilda, the weather forecast for Thur was good so the trip was good to go. Two boats make the trip several times a week if the sea safe, its 50 miles in the Atlantic and takes 3-4 hours. You feel very small in such a big rough sea.
St Kilda comes into view, with its own cloud, still over an hour to go.
As we head for the bay a large sea arch can be seen
To get ashore we all had to be taken in a small inflatable, this is to stop rats getting on the the island and causing problems for the large seabirds breeding areas.
