The Bass Rock lies off East Lothian, in the Firth of Forth, and viewed here from Belhaven Bay, Dunbar. Over the centuries, its towering, steep-sided volcanic crags have been home to hermits, clan chiefs and political prisoners. Today it hosts the world’s largest colony of Northern Gannets, and every year turns brilliant white with the sheer number crammed onto the outcrop. It’s beauty draws visitors from around the world and is a magnet to artists.
