Just back from an excellent 4-night cruise to St Kilda on the Stornoway yacht ‘Elinca’, stopping at Leverburgh, Harris on the way out and in Loch Shell, Lewis on the way back. The weather, the light and the sea conditions were excellent. It was very much a busman’s holiday as I took with me three cameras, on which I shot well over 2,000 photographs! Just titling and editing these files is going to take some time.
I had wanted to go to ‘Eileanan Hiort’ ever since reading Tom Steel’s book, The Life and Death of St. Kilda way back in the early ’90s: now that I’ve finally got there, I think I’ve got the remote islands travel bug…in any case, I certainly want to revisit St Kilda sooner rather than later.
