Work on producing a 3D image map of St Kilda is currently underway in a bid to better manage and conserve the unique world heritage site.

A team from Historic Scotland and Glasgow School of Art are digitally recording Hirta as part of the Scottish Ten project, a ground breaking initiative which uses cutting edge technology to digitally record all five of Scotland’s world heritage sites and five international sites.

The first images of the digital documentation of one of Scotland’s most remote and spectacular locations, St. Kilda have been now been released.
