Cloud-wrapped Borerary, St. Kilda, Scotland

    Newer Older

    Thousands of Gannetts fly out from Boreray, part of the St, Kilda group of islands famed for its fantastic bird colonies. Uninhabited, remote and wild, it was the site of incredible feats of cliff climbing by the St. Kildans who hunted the birds.

    The islands were abandoned by the last of the islanders in 1930.
