St Kilda - Must See Place

4 years ago

St Kilda has been inhabited for at least two millennia, as the modern age drew near, this remotest of Great Britain`s islands saw a steep decline in population until in 1930 the remaining islanders asked to be evacuated due to the increasing difficulty and danger in their isolation. They left behind them a truly extraordinary historical legacy of buildings and wildlife, frozen in time. Visiting the abandoned island in 1947, naturalist James Fisher wrote that "Whatever he studies, the future observer of St Kilda will be haunted the rest of his life by the place." Though many of the buildings suffered badly from the elements in the ensuing decades, restoration work goes on today and the island holds a very rare joint World Heritage Site status for both national and cultural qualities. Visiting is possible throughout the year.

I think this place sounds so cool to visit for its historic values and because it looks beautiful. Have you ever been to St Kilda?
