Rathlin island and St Kilda

Took loads of stuff in 1991 on dive trips out to far away islands...Quality not great..think its the scanner..anway

Rathlin island is just off the north coast of Ireland and was at the time like something out of the 19th century...would be surprised if its changed

The next ones are out at St Kilda which I would love to vist again
We hired a 4 masted schooner for 2 weeks to get there


Ooh Saint Kilda! It's on my wishlist!  

When I get a chance this weekend will scan and post more

Some more St Kilda stuff

David Hayman appeared in a drama about St Kilda back in 1983, but it was actually filmed at a place called Applecross somewhere up north. I think the islanders left St Kilda around August 1930. Great piccies  !! The drama was called "Ill Fares The Land" and the accompanying music was just brilliant.
