Bass Rock, Scotland, UK (Cruise-by)

From North Berwick we pass the magnificent Bass Rock, an imposing volcanic island about a mile from the shore of the Firth of Forth. It features impressive bird and marine wildlife and a lighthouse.

Have your binoculars and cameras ready for the gannets flying to and fro, before they nestle atop the rock. You can also see the isolated and eerie “Scottish Alcatraz,” a long-disused prison.
