Congratulations to all involved with the St Kilda Swim Team after they splashed into the history books.

Swimming, relay-style, non-stop from St Kilda to the Western Isles the seven-strong team became the first ever to do so.

As well as raising huge sums of money for a quartet of charities, the Hebridean heroes crossed 60-miles of the unforgiving North Atlantic Ocean in a speedy 35 hours - well ahead of their anticipated arrival.

See this week’s Gazette for interviews with some of the team and more pics.

On sale tomorrow (Thursday, August 20).
