St Kilda – Village Bay

By Ros @scotlandphohos

When we first arrived, the boat took us right into Village Bay on the main island of Hirta, the most sheltered part of St Kilda.It was a relief to many of the folk on our boat to be out of the Atlantic swell!

There’s a classic view from the  hill behind the village – it’s easy to see why so many photographers who visit Hirta have taken a photo like this one:

I climbed up the hill behind the bay, to take this shot looking across the back of the village towards The Gap, and showing the top of Boreray in the distance;
