Mountain and Sea Scotland
The summit area of Conachair is home to a colony of the largest, most powerful and predatory of seabirds in northern waters, Great Skuas (Cataracta skua), known in Scotland as "Bonxies". As soon as we approached they got airborne in preparation. They began a concerted series of low level attacks on us, normally at head height.

In historic times, a small population - about 180 in 1697 - rented the land from a distant landlord, latterly the Macleods of Dunvegan in Skye. They lived in a small settlement in Village Bay with seasonal dwellings (summer shielings) in Gleann Bay. The landlord rented land to the islanders through a factor who collected the rents on his annual visit to St Kilda. He was represented by a Ground Officer, a St Kildan, who dealt with the islanders on a day-to-day basis.
