With those photos of the sea stacks, no wonder that only two people so far have completed the Marilyns. Less people have stood on the summit of Stac Lee (if you exclude the St. Kildans on their intrepid egg gathering forays) than have http://www.munros-scotland.com/dave-hew ... agger.html

Now that you're about 2/3 the way to Marilyn completion you may as well carry on to the end Good effort
I remember some politician calling for St Kilda to be re-populated with descendants of the last people to live there - not too sure if he bothered to ask any of them whether they would like to live somewhere so remote and difficult!
Cheers for a great report

I hope to visit St Kilda one day, maybe not to scramble up sea stacks, but the wildlife looks amazing.
Stac Lee in your last picture reminds me of Titanic leaving port
