Well, there are several ways aren't there?
My rough plan is to go:
Peel
Coll (to overnight)
Mallaig (to refuel)
Ronay (to overnight again, leaving early in the morning)
Then.....................

Or ? via Port Ellen on Islay and then Barra? But Fuel and distance??

Your leaving from Uig. You must need to go thru the islands as well?
Which way will you go?
Straight out to Berneray, a little tricky but can be done we will assess weather, then straight out to the island 52miles from this point. Then hope the plotters don't stop and we all end up in Greenland

There's a company called Seatrek which makes the trip to St Kilda (weather permitting). They normally look for at least a 3-day window before making the crossing. They operate out of Uig (Loch Roag), in Lewis. Would be worth speaking to Murray (owner/skipper) if you need more information. http://www.seatrek.co.uk/

You're supposed to get landing permission from Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH). They send you a permission granted letter and they inform the wardens of your date for arrival. I've done this twice but the other time I just turned up and had no problem. One trip was during the foot and mouth outbreak and this was insisted upon as was carrying disinfectant for footwear before being allowed ashore so it's not entirely uncontrolled access. The wardens will be seriously miffed if you land and nip off without registering your arrival.

JW - do you mean SNH - rather than NTS? http://www.kilda.org.uk/frame8.htm

Me too! If you are willing to let me tag along I would like to take my boat and a couple of keen divers.

Well it used to be NTS but I was under the impression it's now SNH.

Now appears to be managed by all three with overlapping roles. Will check it out.
