Last St Kildan on pilgrimage home
Norman John Gillies only spent the first five years of his life on the islands, but his childhood memories remain clear.
Far out into the Atlantic, the islands are the most remote part of the British Isles ever inhabited.
Islanders lived there for thousands of years, until the last left in 1930.
On the anniversary of the 75th evacuation, Norman John brought his family to see St Kilda for the first time.
