Stac an Armin meaning stack of the soldier/warrior reaches about 196m in height. The image shows the stack in the centre with the island of Boreray to the left and Stac Lee to the right. None of these have ever been permanently inhabited but Stac an Armin was regularly visited by the St Kildans to harvest birds. The book ‘’Where the World Ends’’ by Geraldine McCaughrean provides a fascinating - partly fictional - account of a group of St Kildans who were stranded there for nine months and is highly recommended.
