There ya go...


From 1957 to 2003 management of the island was delegated to Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and was managed under a partnership agreement between the NTS, SNH and the MoD. This changed in September 2003 when the Trust was granted ‘Approved Status’ by SNH to manage the National Nature Reserve directly.

The partnership approach to managing the islands continues, and has been expanded to include Historic Scotland, QinetiQ (agents for MoD) and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar – the Western Isles Council. Representatives of all the partnership organisations meet regularly to make both strategic and operational decisions about the management of St. Kilda. The Trust also appoints a seasonal ranger and an archaeologist, with financial assistance from SNH and Historic Scotland respectively.

Under the enabling legislation, the Trust ensures there are opportunities for access to and enjoyment of its properties by the public where possible. Given the difficulty in getting to St Kilda, the Trust provides opportunities for access through its work party programme. Other visitors to the islands arriving by their own means are welcome, although numbers must be monitored because of the sensitivity of the natural and cultural heritage of the islands, and management carried out where necessary to ensure impacts on the heritage of the islands are minimised. The Trust is also working to provide opportunities for greater understanding and appreciation of St Kilda, not only for those who reach the islands, but also for the wider population who may not be able to visit.
For information on all aspects of St Kilda not addressed by this website, please contact:

Not had much chance to get out in her yet though, so pictures are thin on the ground. Here's one so you'll recognise me!

You're most welcome, anytime. I haven't looked at the forecast yet, but if the weather is half decent I'll have her in the water at the weekend.

When are you putting Saffron back in?

Just a few pictures for you to drool over whilst planning your trip.
We just turned up without giving advance warning, but made a point of finding the warden as soon as we had landed. She was very helpful and happy to see us, but then, who wouldn't be!!
There are more buildings than I had exepcted. In addition to the defence contractors' accommodation and power station there is a pub (The Puff Inn), a shop (I still have the Soay mouse mat on my desk) and other bits and pieces.
We were warned about surge along the pier making mooring difficult but we had no problem.
Happy planning!

I'd be tempted to make this trip myself but, I just don't think I could handle the excitement in that pub. Did the guy drinking the Boddies leave or expire?

Lat time I was there the pub was shut to visitors as it had lost its licence and the nice lady warden wouldnt let us in for a sly pint even after we brought her out to our ship for a look about.

Would love to go out there in the rib at some point but shame the Pac has a crap tank range (hopefully being fixed soon with the installation of a bladder tank under the foredeck)
