the story for the design


Soay is part of the extraordinary, remote St Kilda archipelago in the far Outer Hebrides of Scotland.

Uninhabited Soay is a wild and idyllic home for hundreds of Soay sheep, a small and hardy rare breed of sheep that is native to the island. These Soay sheep survive around the highest sea-cliffs in the British Isles.

The spectacular St Kilda islands are 40 miles further out to sea than North Uist, which itself is remote from the mainland of Scotland. St Kilda's unique landscape is protected as a World Heritage Site.
