St. Kilda

St. Kilda is an archipelago located off the west coast of Scotland in the North Atlantic Ocean. It is the most remote part of the British Isles and is made up of four main islands: Hirta, Soay, Boreray and Dun. The archipelago is about 40 miles (65 km) west of the Outer Hebrides and is a World Heritage Site.

The islands have been inhabited since prehistoric times and were home to a unique culture. The St Kildans were a self-sufficient community that lived off fishing and the harvesting of seabirds. The remoteness of the islands meant that the St Kildans had little contact with the outside world.

The islands were abandoned in 1930 when the last 36 inhabitants left due to a combination of declining population, crop failure and a lack of medical care. The islands are now home to a variety of wildlife, including the world's largest colony of Northern gannets.

St Kilda is a popular tourist destination with cruise ships visiting during the summer months. Visitors can explore the islands' unique history and landscape, including the abandoned village of Village Bay and the Iron Age fort of Dun.

In 1986, the islands were designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for their unique cultural and natural heritage. The islands are also home to a variety of rare and endangered species, including the St Kilda field mouse and the St Kilda wren.

Today, St Kilda is a popular destination for birdwatchers, photographers, and hikers. The islands are also used as a base for scientific research into the local wildlife and ecology.
