Cover of St Kilda World Heritage Site leaflet

St Kilda is a group of five remote islands and sea stacs in the North Atlantic, 100 miles off the west coast of Scotland. The islands are home to the largest colony of seabirds in northern Europe, including nearly 20% of the world’s population of northern gannets. For around four millennia the island's human inhabitants had survived in this seemingly harsh environment by catching seabirds for food, feathers and oil, and farming some crops.
