If the conditions are favourable, another highlight of the St Kilda Expedition is to paddle the open crossing from Village Bay at St Kilda to Boreray and its sea stacks. These sea stacks are the some of the highest in Europe and form the nesting ground for the largest colony of gannets in the north Atlantic. We’re met by gannets circling the kayaks, so many they seem more like a swarm of insects.
