Historic Skye to St Kilda sailing restored

A historic link to the remote islands of St Kilda has been restored with the launch of a new service from the Isle of Skye.

St Kilda was owned by the MacLeods of Dunvegan Castle on Skye for centuries and was sold after the islanders were evacuated in 1930.

BBC Scotland's environment correspondent David Miller has just returned from St Kilda.
