So far I’ve been unable to track down the lyrics to The Isles of Hirta.
I’m heading off shortly to spend some time on St Kilda and would love to learn the song before going. Any help would be appreciated.

Words are printed on the page along with this video on the ITMA site: Derek Williamson, singing in English: Isles of Hirta

Carole and Alan Prior sing it: think you might know them Duncan? (But also thanks to Mick for his link).

Thanks guys, that brilliant.

I recorded Carole and Alan singing it at last years Falkland Traditional Festival.
So I had most of the words, but there were one or two I wasn’t sure of.
The video of Carole and Alan is on YouTube. Just search for “The Isles of Hirta”
