Silversea Expedition Cruises Nach ST. KILDA

ST. KILDA

Gloriously remote, St. Kilda is an archipelago 50 miles off the Isle of Harris. Although the four islands are uninhabited by humans, thousands of seas birds call these craggy cliffs home, clinging to the sheer faces as if by magic. Not only is St. Kilda home to the UK’s largest colony of Atlantic Puffin (almost 1 million), but also the world largest colony Gannets nests on Boreray island and its sea stacks. View more

The islands also home decedents of the world’s original Soay sheep as well as having a breed of eponymously named mice. The extremely rare St. Kilda wren unsurprisingly hails from St. Kilda, so birders should visit with notebook, binoculars and camera to hand. While endemic animal species is rife on the island, St. Kilda has not been peopled since 1930 after the last inhabitants voted that human life was unsustainable. However, permanent habitation had been possible in the Medieval Ages, and a vast National Trust for Scotland project to restore the dwellings is currently being undertaken. The islands even enjoyed a status as being an ideal holiday destination in the 19th century. Today, the only humans living on the islands are passionate history, science and conservation scholars. One of the caretakers even acts as shopkeeper and postmaster for any visitors who might like to send a postcard home from St. Kilda. It should be noted that St. Kilda is the UKs only (and just one of 39 in the world) dual World Heritage status from UNESCO in recognition of its Natural Heritage and cultural significance.

Expedition Activities with Silversea Expedition team

The islands of St. Kilda lie 41 miles west of Benbecula in Scotland's Outer Hebrides. The archipelago is made up of stunning cliffs and sea stacks which form the most important seabird breeding colony in northwest Europe.


The islands were inhabited for at least two millennia until the entire population requested to be evacuated in 1930, as life on the island became increasingly difficult with food shortages, flu outbreaks and a general breakdown of the economy.


Take the opportunity today to discover the village with its many stone-built stores known as cleits. Visit the museum in one of the restored houses which tells the story of the remarkable people who lived in this breathtaking setting.


St. Kilda is one of the few places in the world to have received dual World Heritage Status from UNESCO in recognition of its Natural Heritage and cultural significance.


On arrival, be welcomed by the resident NTS Ranger before having the opportunity to explore independently. Take a cruise amidst the stunning sea stacks in the afternoon before returning to the ship.

Kayaking with Silversea Expedition team

A spectacular Kayaking exerience is offered today around the beautiful bay of St Kilda. See the panaramic view of this ancient settlement from the water with the unique Sewy Sheep, endemic to this island, grazing on the hills.
