The historic connection between Dunvegan, Isle of Skye, and St Kilda.

 
The group of islands, 40 miles into the open Atlantic beyond the Outer lsles, was for centuries part of the land of the MacLeod's seated in Dunvegan Castle. They were only sold in the 1930s after the islanders had been evacuated. The relics preserved at Dunvegan Castle illustrate the extraordinary way of life of its people. On visiting the Castle you will notice the horsehair rope. No man was allowed to marry until he had wovent one of these, so that he could maintain his wife by being able to hunt for the sea-birds living on the great cliffs. This rope had to be able to bear his weight in case he fell from the cliffs during the hunt. The door lock with its removable wooden key and the post-bag are recognisable functions of everyday life today, even if their application by the islanders was somewhat unusual. Mail was thrown into the sea to be washed up eventually either on the shores of Norway or of Scotland, depending upon the currents at the time.
