2005 St Kilda

Lerwick to St Kilda

We had a great trip to St Kilda in mid August! The weather held fine and the wind was at our backs every way we turned ..pretty unusual for the Swan! We saw dolphins and caught fresh mackrel. Stopped off at the Flannan Isles on the way down and the Shiants on the way up. We had a BBQ in the rain at St Kilda and bannocks in the sun at Loch Grimshader! There was a crackin' sail in a near gale between Lochmaddy and Portree and calms off Stornoway where we were taking photos from the top of the mast. A great 10 days!
Many thanks to Ian Tinkler for some of the photos on this page.
