A Paddling Pilgrimage

It's one of the last places in my country for me to visit. St Kilda is unique- a spectacular land and seascape with a history that is unlike any other. An exploration by kayak is undoubtedly the best way to see it. I joined one of  Murdo MacDonald and Murty Campbell's cruises on the MV Cuma, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The company was wonderful, the food heartening, and to top it all, the weather was fine.
I think I'll just post the pictures rather than say anything else.

 We moved on to the clear waters of Taransay and Scarp.

Murty Campbell, sea kayaking legend


  1. Murty looks like he is imagining a cool post paddling pint. Fantastic photos.

  2. Hi Iain, so glad to see that you had good weather to explore the astonishing St Kilda. It took us quite a while to adjust our vertical perspective back down from St Kilda dimensions! And in Murdani and Cuma, you had the finest base imaginable.

    Some superb images here, I absolutely love the Gannets over Stac Lee

    Kind Regards


  3. Looks like a great trip, and absolutely stunning photos. Truly inspirational.
