View towards Bass Rock and lighthouse of North Berwick, East Lothian, Scotland
Millions of migrating sea birds including gannets and puffins nest here. A prison on the rock held prisoners during the Covenanting Wars in the 17th century (The Killing Times). Many died on the rock (Scotland's Alcatraz) including the Reverend John Blackadder. St Baldred had a chapel built here in the 7th century. This great man, known as East Lothian's Patron Saint, met his maker here.
