Boat Trips for 2017
St Kilda Day Trip
The sheer thought of St Kilda lures the mind into the longing for the unknown. It is a place you have heard about, somewhere you think you know but most definitely a place you must discover.
You know it is not an easy journey yet if achieved one of the most rewarding and rightly so.
St Kilda lies 41 miles out into the Atlantic ocean from its nearest point. The journey there can take about three hours. St Kilda looms before you yet with each minute it never seems to get any closer. Gradually through time its magnitude unfolds before your eyes and you are dwarfed by its cliffs, the skies are clouded with birds and the air echoes with the shrills and calls of a million seabirds. This is the meaning of awesome.
As we approach village bay you see the homes deserted in 1930. A place where time stood still but where the broken souls of those who left still haunt every crevice. This is a tragic tale but also a heroic one. One that challenges us to this day. Your time ashore on St Kilda, roughly four hours will be one of the most memorable you will ever take. When the time comes to leave a part of you will always remain on the "Edge of the World"
Wonders of Nature
The Hebrides, those enchanted isles where time seems to stand still and life slips by slowly and without a murmur. These are the islands where wildlife chosen to make their home. Seabirds abound along the coastlines. Puffins, Eider ducks, Gannets, Razorbills, Guillemots, Shags, Cormorants all posture in their finest plumage on cliff edges.
Above the cliffs a soaring sea eagle can be seen, Slowly gliding, soaring high above the island as if guarding the coastline against unknown intruders.
Our wildlife trip takes you out into the Atlantic, into tranquil hidden coves, sea caves, and past ancient settlements. The wonders of nature will unfold before your eyes and the secret world of an island will be yours to savor. Weather permitting we may land on a remote beach and experience a real castaway moment.
These boat trips last for two and a half hours and are a wonderful introduction to the islands.
