Sceilig Bheag

Little Skellig (Sceilig Bheag in Irish) is situated some 14 km off the coast of County Kerry, Ireland. Like its larger neighbour Skellig Michael, it is steep, rocky and uninhabited by humans. It rises to 134 metres above sea level.

It is the second largest Gannet colony in the world with 30,000 breeding pairs and looks snow capped all year round!
