Night on St. Kilda in the Atlantic west of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. This is the village that the islanders abandoned in 1930 when they just couldn’t go on. It’s now a UNESCO World Heritage site, cared for by the National Trust for Scotland. Several of the houses have been restored to provide housing for Trust workers. I stayed in this one, while it rained for a week and I read the haunting tale of the people of St. Kilda. @natgeo @natgeocreative #scotland #hebrides
~St Kilda (Scottish Gaelic: Hiort) is an isolated archipelago 64 kilometres (40 mi) west-northwest of North Uist in the North Atlantic Ocean. It contains the westernmost islands of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland~ - http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/highlandsandislands/hi/people_and_places/newsid_8949000/8949759.stm
This is potentially the sort of imagery that could well represent the content of book on the cover. The approaching cliffs and gulls bring to light the tidal island of which the story is set. The dusk-like colours are pleasing to the eye and set an intriguing, mystical asthetic to the skies and surrounds of the isle conjuring from the sea.
Melbourne, Australia - What better way to spend a sung Subday than in St Kilda? Whether it's a ride legendary Luna Park, a gig at the Palais, a dip in the sea, or coffee and cake in Acland Street, it's a colourful, fun place to play. RePinned by : www.powercouplelife.com
