The Bass Rock is an island in the outer part of the Firth of Fourth, a steep sided volcanic rock it is home to over a 150,000 gannets at the peak of the season. The gannets live on the Bass Rock until the end of October when they start their migration south, some travelling as far a field as the west coast of Africa and return to the rock to breed from February. The island is home to many species of birds including shags, guillemots and razorbills, while colonies of seals can be seen hauling themselves up on to the lower rocks of the island. The Bass rock is such a distinctive landmark and I see it everyday on my walks along the Fife coast path. It’s appearance changes from day to day from a dark brooding mass on a dull winter’s day to completely disappearing in the haar. While on a bright sunny day its guano covered surface glows like a bright white beacon on the horizon.
The Bass Rock has inspired many different designs and is also available as an art print, serving mats and set of coasters.
