The remote Hebridean archipelago of St Kilda has been shortlisted in the ‘Britain’s favourite nature reserve’ category in the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2013.
The 10 nominees in the favourite nature reserve category were selected by nature writer Mark Cocker and presenter of the BBC’s ‘Big Wildlife Revival’ Ellie Harrison. Commenting on St Kilda they said: “These islands rise out of the Atlantic with sublime drama and are packed with tens of thousands of seabirds.”

The 2013 awards were launched in the August issue of BBC Countryfile Magazine, and feature 10 categories, from conservation projects and best heritage site to countryside writers and our finest nature reserves.
