St Kilda Photography from the "Islands on the edge of the world"

“It is my intention to present – through the medium of photography – intuitive observations of the natural world which may have meaning to the spectators.” — Ansel Adams

Lying some 150km west of the Scottish mainland, the remote archipelago of St Kilda is a place of superlatives.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site and a National Nature Reserve, St Kilda holds Europe's most important seabird colony, with the world's largest colonies of gannets and fulmars.

The two major sea stacs, Stac an Armin and Stac Lee are the highest in Britain, whilst the cliffs of Conachair, on the main island of Hirta, are the highest sea cliffs in Britain.

Having been lucky to visit this spectacular setting several times since my first visit in 1980, the images in this gallery are my own reflections of my visits.

The St Kilda Gun Emplacement
Following an attack on St Kilda by a German U-boat in 1918, a gun emplacement was installed to protect the village. The 4.7-inch QF gun was installed overlooking Village Bay - but has never been fired in anger.
