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".

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.

He was represented by a Ground Officer, a St Kildan, who dealt with the islanders on a day-to-day basis.
