St Kilda, 1967
These photos are a record from a two-week visit to St Kilda in September 1967, so their quality is not of the best as they were scanned from transparencies or prints of the time. It was an interesting expedition for two mycologists from Edinburgh, arranged through the auspices of the Nature Conservancy [Scotland], to record the fungi of the islands. We travelled courtesy the army's Royal Corps of Transport on their fortnightly tank landing craft service, and stayed in the Factor's House.
