Scope and Content Map of post-1861 houses, village, Hirta, St Kilda, Hebrides St Kilda was settled in ancient times but repopulated after 1727 when a smallpox epidemic left only 30 survivors. The only village, on Hirta, was rebuilt in the 1830s and evacuated in 1930 after the population had shrunk to under 30. This map shows the rectangular-plan houses built after the 1860 hurricane. In late 1860, a hurricane devastated St Kilda and in the next year the landlord sent craftsmen from the mainland to build new houses. Many of the older black houses remained in service, but no more were constructed. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
