Hirta – Scotland

Do you know Hirta is the largest island in the St Kilda archipelago, right on the western boundary of Scotland? Well, it is. The beautiful landmass was once inhabited by a whole village way back since the 1830s -that is a long time ago!

Many residents willingly decided to pack their belongings and migrated to another place they could call home. Finally, on August 29, 1930, the remaining 36 residents relocated to Modern on the Scottish mainland at their own entreaty. The island was later entrusted to the National Trust for Scotland in 1957.
