Washed up letter

I came across this wonderful story in the Scotland on Sunday about a letter written in 1899 sent from St Kilda in a “mail boat” – a wooden box or other waterproof receptacle attached to a homemade buoy – inside of which letters would be placed with a note attached saying “St Kilda mail”.

Here are some short films that I have made on St Kilda [please click on title or image to play each individual film]:

St Kilda [Are ever-constant in your changefulness]:

St Kilda [Let the anchor go]:

St Kilda [that’s entertainment]:

St Kilda [is our island told in books?]:
