St Kilda the app
The story of St Kilda captures the imagination. This unique UNESCO Double World Heritage site has an extraordinarily rich tale to tell - the story of human survival on a small group of isolated islands, the story of unique natural history and distinct geology.
The remotest part of the British Isles, lying out in the Atlantic, some 40 miles from the nearest land, St Kilda is difficult to get to. St Kilda, the islands, can now be visited though St Kilda the app.
A link to the archipelago, past and present, in your pocket. St Kilda the app uses film; images old and new and the voices of the islanders - both Gaelic and English - weaving their music and song to tell the islands story.
