On Getting Out

Village Bay (below) is often featured whenever St Kilda is presented. However, the number of people who reach this island is comparatively few. New services are always attempting either to satisfy or to create demand for getting there. Now Integrity Voyages is offering day-trips as well as two- and four-day camping trips there from Uig on Skye. Yesterday's item was about proposals for flights into Skye; today's concerns a way of getting out - to one of the most aspirational destinations in the UK. So it's a full 12 hours for the outward and inward journeys including four hours there. Yet reaching Uig does not involve a ferry crossing from the Mainland. From Skye it could well be plain sailing.
