This short film is based on the photography of St Kilda by Robert Atkinson.
Robert Atkinson’s visits to St Kilda were interrupted by a world war.
The School of Scottish Studies, University of Edinburgh, has kindly made Robert Atkinson’s photographic archive available to all.
In the summer of 2015, as a family, we visited St Kilda. I have made several films about this and other islands.
This film is for James Ross.
