Life under St Kilda

There is a set of spectacular photos of the marine world under St Kilda, over on the new Ionad Hiort website. Many thanks to the photographer Paul Kay.  Click on the fish to see more.

St Kilda has been inscribed as a World Heritage Site under both natural and cultural criteria; in 2004 the WHS designation, at the time only for its natural attributes, recognised also the “complex ecological dynamic in the three marine zones present in the site” which was extended to included the surrounding marine area.
