Just imagine if you bought it and moved there, only to find that there was no phone reception. Nightmare.

If you like Scottish islands and lighthouses and if you didn't watch it yesterday, this is really, really great: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00y6hym

Warning: may cause wobbliness

The Guardian, yesterday, St Kilda, photos: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/gallery/20 ... n-pictures

I haven't unpacked my Indietracks bag yet, so if anyone's heading towards North Uist, I'm ready to go now.

Have I mentioned on here yet that the most northern permanent point of land is an island off the coast of Greenland called Coffee Club Island (or Kaffeklubben Island), named after the coffee club in Copenhagen's museum of mineralology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaffeklubben_Island - I thought that was a great name for somewhere so geographically significant.

Also, this isn't strictly a distant island in the spirit of this thread, as it's antarctica and quite big, but it's an islandy landscape - you can have a go on google streetview as a penguin - http://goo.gl/maps/pEL1

Look at the little person, it's a penguin! :)

My lovely girlfriend got me the remote islands atlas for my birthday yesterday - looking forward to reading it and daydreaming.

Did anyone watch the first of three (eeeeee!) episodes on St Kilda on BBC4 last night?

I missed the first ten minutes or so and was watching again now. That approach by boat looks terrifying. Also: the most incredible thing ever.

I saw the last 5 minutes of it. I'll try and watch on iplayer later this week. It did look fab.

Kate bloody Humble gets everywhere these days though, doesn't she? Great name, obviously, but still.

St Kilda looks amazing (also, baby puffins! acid-spitting birds!), but I found the presenters quite irritating. Too many superlatives.

Yeah, it wasn't really the best piece of television ever when Kate Humble called the St Kildans "stupid" for not knowing that they were polluting their land. Still, Boreray.

Hey St Kilda fans. Just noticed that a programme I edited around 4 years ago about the island and the people who work there is repeated tonight. BBC Alba at 9 (168 on Sky & freeview 8 in Scotland). I presume it'll be on iplayer after that.

When I was watching the last episode Ralph saw that it was the bloke who presents Deadly 60 on CBBC and watched the whole thing with me and was really interested in it. There's no way he would have watched it otherwise.

I should point out that around half of it will be in Gaelic, though obviously subtitled.

That's okay. I do occasionally like watching music programmes on Alba and they're often in Gaelic.
