COME and see the past, present and future of St Kilda!

Visitors to Uig Community Hall on Friday, August 5, will have an exciting opportunity to get an insight into the past of St Kilda, the interesting work being carried out by Historic Scotland on the islands right now as well as the plans for the future St Kilda Centre in Uig.

Starting at 2pm, visitors to Uig Community Hall can choose from a selection of DVDs of archive and other films related to St Kilda and watch them in the hall. From 3pm there will be a mini bus leaving from the hall to take visitors to the site of the proposed St Kilda Visitor Centre in Uig.

The events continue into the evening with a special presentation at 7.30pm by Historic Scotland on the exciting cloud-point laser mapping they are doing on St Kilda which will create a 3D digital map of the island.

The demonstration will be followed by a family ceilidh with stories and St Kildan folklore from Calum Ferguson and songs from St Kilda with the traditional Gaelic singer Catriona Watt.
