Bass Rock

Bass Rock is an island in the outer part of the Firth of Forth in the east of Scotland, off North Berwick[?].

It is a volcanic plug and over 100 m high. It is part of the Firth of Forth Islands SPA, a Special Protection Area covering some, but not all of the islands in the inner and outer Firth. Bass Rock itself is an SSSI, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, in its own right.

It plays host to the largest gannet (Morus bassana) population on the east coast of the United Kingdom.
