Sea Kayaking St Kilda: the great cave of Geo nan Plaidean

The north coast of Hirta in the St Kilda archipelago is a wild place. Much of it falls sheer into the sea from the heights above and forms the greatest and highest wall of sea cliffs in the British Isles.

After passing Mina Stac we came across the great cave of Geo nan Plaidean. The wall above it rises almost to the summit of Conachair, 430m.

Tony watches Fiona F and Alan entering the cave.

Clark leaves the cave with Mina Stac behind and Stac an Armin, Stac Lee and Boreray on the horizon.



  1. Great series, Douglas! And what great weather you enjoyed during your visit. You must live right...

  2. Thank you Michael, it was a great trip. Of course I live right, a Guinness a day....
