North Berwick, Scotland

Large on black:-


On our way home from Skye we broke the journey up and stayed over in North Berwick. We decided on North Berwick after watching an episode of Coast (a BBC documentary on the coastline of Britain). This particular episode had a feature on Bass Rock, which is the object on the right side of the horizon. The Rock stands over 100 m high; is a Site of Special Scientific Interest in its own right, due to its Gannet colony and is sometimes called "the Ailsa Craig of the East". The Rock also has a lighthouse constructed on it, which can't be seen on this photo.


The larger island on the left of the horizon is Craigleith which is home to a puffin colony.
