Sheep on Boreray, St Kilda
Sheep on Boreray, St Kilda
These are some of the descendants of the original Blackface sheep kept by the St Kildans on Hirta and Boreray. When the islanders were evacuated in 1930 the sheep on Hirta were taken with them and sold, but there were no enough able-bodied males to take the sheep from Boreray, so they were abandoned to their fate.
