Entrance, Bass Rock
Entrance, Bass Rock
The rock is still fortified. This is a gate in the castle walls which is normally locked, protecting the gannets nesting grounds above. The vegetation is tree mallow, Lavatera arborea. The plant has been established on the Bass Rock for centuries, but has escaped to neighbouring islands where it is severely limiting the breeding success of puffins. Meanwhile here it has been kept down by the vast number of gannets.
