Boy oh boy, was I excited when I got up this morning - I was going to St Kilda! I don't know how long I had known of St. Kilda - but it felt like somewhere I had always been aware of and this was just too good an opportunity to miss. Although it was quite expensive (£160 for the day), it really is a unique place that not many people get the chance to visit.
A great morning promising sunshine. However this of course meant the midges were out in force again. So after a quick shower, I very quickly struck camp and headed off. The fast descent into Rhenigidale meant that my first job of the morning was climbing out of there. It was tough, but not as tough as coming in (and I don't think that is just because I was fresh compared to the previous night).
