Festivals & Heritage

St Kilda was bequeathed to The National Trust for Scotland by the 5th Marquess of Bute in 1957. In the same year, it was designated a National Nature Reserve by the Nature Conservancy (now Scottish Natural Heritage). Just before his death, the Marquess of Bute agreed to lease a small area of land on Hirta to the Ministry of Defence as a radar tracking station for its missile range on Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides. Today, these three organisations, The National Trust for Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and MoD, work in partnership to further a continuing programme of conservation and research on the islands and to ensure the care and protection of this World Heritage Site. St Kilda has received many national and international designations in recognition of its outstanding natural and cultural heritage.
