Vision set out for remote islands

St Kilda
The vision is part of a wider draft management plan

A draft vision for St Kilda has been put together by the island archipelago's owner, the National Trust for Scotland (NTS).

It has proposed that the dual Unesco World Heritage site should be an example of the conservation of cultural and natural features.

NTS said St Kilda should be safeguarded against overfishing, shipping and offshore renewable developments.

The vision is part of wider draft management plan.

It includes a plan that the sheep of the archipelago's islands of Soay, Hirta and Boreray will continue to be treated as wild and unmanaged animals.

NTS has sought public views on the vision and management plan.
