North Uist is the nearest landmass to the fascinating and beautiful archipelago of St Kilda, which lies just 38 nautical miles away. A visit to this world heritage site is a memorable experience. Uist Sea Tours have day trips to St Kilda from the Lochboisdale/Eriskay and also offer wildlife watching trips. Boat trips from the nearby island of Harris take around 3 hours each way. Kilda cruises and SeaHarris run day trips during the summer. All trips must be booked in advance.
