Bivy Bag Nights – Soay, St Kilda

My second Bivy Bag Night was on Soay, St Kilda. The island had not been landed for over five years when I spent the night on the island on 28/29 August 2007. Since the previous landing there had been a major land fall at the established landing point.

Arriving at the summit of Soay, the Westernmost Point of Scotland, GB and the UK I had achieved my goal to become the first person to land all 162 Scottish islands which are 40 hectares or greater in size.

By sleeping on the island I became the first person to sleep alone on both Soay and Boreray. In addition I became the first person to sleep on all 162 Scottish islands which are 40 hectares or greater in size.
