Bass Rock

The Bass Rock is an island in the outer part of the Firth of Forth approximately 2 km offshore, and 5 km north-east of North Berwick.

The rock is a near vertical sided volcanic rock, 107 m (351 ft) at its highest point an is a Site of Special Scientific Interest in part due to the world’s largest colony of Northern gannets.

You also have a few buildings, a castle that was used as a prison, the Bass Rock Lighthouse was constructed on the rock in 1902, and the remains of an ancient chapel survive.
