World Heritage Site
St. Kilda is one of the few places in the world with Dual World Heritage Status - awarded for its natural and cultural significance. This archipelago is a good candidate for a virtual visit because it is very difficult to reach! Set amid rough seas, and 66 kilometres west of the Outer Hebrides, it is the remotest inhabited part of the British Isles.
The last inhabitants of St Kilda left in 1930 but it is still home to Soay sheep (a rare breed), and has its own sub-species of fieldmouse and wren. Nowadays, work parties undertake conservation work in summer months, and a designated ranger/naturalist monitors its fauna and flora.
