Atlantic: A Scottish Story is an 8-part musical drama inspired by the true stories of Scotland’s most remote and forgotten island - St Kilda.

St Kilda now lies deserted, but it was once home to a remarkable community. For hundreds of years, islanders endured extraordinary conditions and built a unique society. On 29 August 1930, the entire island boarded a ship and left their home, forever. The series tells that story, through the eyes of two young islanders and the paths they both choose. Home and heritage, identity and belonging, stretched across the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.

The series was written by award-winning musical theatre partnership, Noisemaker - bookwriter/lyricist Scott Gilmour and composer, Claire McKenzie - and produced by The Big Light. Atlantic features a soaring original score, traditional Gaelic song and real location recordings from St Kilda itself, immersing listeners in a story about a community out on the edge of the world.
