1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We loved sailing on the little ship St.Hilda. The captains Christophe and Chris kept the sailing trouble free all the way to St.Kilda and we even did some under sail only. It was beautiful. We saw seals, dolphins, a minke whale and all sorts of sea birds. There were plenty of books to reference what we saw. Morag our cook was brilliant serving up tasty meals and even making bread for my husband who is gluten intolerant. We sailed all around St.Kilda too, to look at the bird colonies on the sea stacks. It was amazing with the weather being kind to us too. We also stopped off at Barra, Vatersay, Canna, Tobermory and Loch Aline.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

We were all good sailors but sea sickness pills are needed if you are susceptible.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not many people get out to St.Kilda which is supervised by the national trust for Scotland. We were encouraged to take nothing on to the island and leave nothing behind. At our stopping off points we all used the local shops for souvenirs and coffees etc.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We enjoyed every moment of the holiday. We were with like minded travellers who were good company. The crew looked after us so well.

Reaching the ultimate destination StKilda in fine weather

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for some long hours at sea - and take sea sickness tablets , even in fine weather the North Atlantic swell is significant

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

This trip was a fantastic opportunity to observe birds and sea animals in pristine environments, no rubbish was left behind and a contribution was made to the local economy with purchases from the crew and passengers for each stop en route.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I rate this holiday as one of the best Iíve had. Everything worked to perfection. The crew were helpful, friendly and skilful. It was a very happy band of travellers who were privileged to visit a seldom visited, beautiful part of the world.
