St Kilda is the most romanticised group of islands in Europe. Soaring out of the North Atlantic, this remote, wave-battered outpost was inhabited for centuries by Scots Gaels, who eked a precarious existence from land and sea, and by catching seabirds on its dizzying cliffs. Roger Hutchinson has dug deep into the archives to write the first modern history of this proud, self-sufficient people from the Stone Age to 1930, when the last 36 islanders were evacuated to the mainland.
