St Kilda View Point

(St Kilda Viewpoint)

A dry-stone construction on the southwestern slopes of South Clettraval in North Uist in the Outer Hebrides, the St. Kilda View Point was constructed next to the former military road which still provides access to the RAF Benbecula monitoring and communications station on the hill, 1½ miles (2.5 km) east southeast of Hosta. Equipped with binoculars and stone-panel viewpoint indicators, visitors can look out towards the Monach Islands and St Kilda beyond, some 44 miles (71 km) distant. The View Point was developed by the North Uist Partnership and was officially opened on 28th August 2009 by local Councillors Archie Campbell and Uisdean Robertson. It featured in the BBC television programme Monty Halls Great Hebridean Escape (2010).
