On 15 May, 24 of us took a trip to St Kilda with Kilda Cruises. The sea was choppy but the two boats coped well despite a couple of our number being seasick! We disembarked via rubber dinghies and had an amazing four hours ashore exploring the main island Hirta. On the return trip we circumnavigated Boreray and saw the... More

We can't praise Kilda Cruises enough. Our trip went ahead on day two of the window, the crew were professional, competent, cheerful, informative, hospitable and caring on a very rough crossing out to the islands. The place is just incredible to see and experience, and feel the history of the centuries of habitation. We have wanted to go for years,... More

Once in a lifetime trip, don't miss it!! Costly but worth it! Plenty of time to explore this special place. We walked to the highest point for fantastic Views. The tour round the stacks was something else! Knowledgeable crew & delicious cake and tea served on the boat!

I can't recommend Kilda Cruises highly enough. Absolutely fantastic day trip to St Kilda. It was a bumpy crossing on the way out, but that just added to the sense of adventure and was worth every minute. The main island of Hirta is spectacular and has a fascinating history. If you're feeling fit, then a hike up to highest point... More

This was the first trip of the year for Kilda Cruises. We were a bit apprehensive earlier in the week that the trip would not go ahead due to wind speed and sea swell. Thankfully on the second of a two day window we were very fortunate to be able to make the trip to these magical islands. We saw... More

An awesome day out. The boat ride alone was worth the fee. A little choppy on the crossing just added to the experience, although I'm sure I may be alone with that opinion. Crew were superb, David answered any and multiple questions we had. Left to our own wanderings on the island with just enough time to get around most... More

The trip to St Kilda was the highlight of our trip to the Western Isles. We were also very lucky to have perfect weather - clear blue skies and calm seas. The entire trip was well organized, from the booking to the actual trip, and the crew were professional and placed priority on safety. We had 5 hours on the... More
