Farne Islands
A group of 15 - 20 islands (depending on the tides) offshore of Seahouses, Northumberland. They are the most easterly outcrops of the Whin Sill (a dolerite intrusion across north east England). The islands are divided into the inner and outer islands. The Islands are an important breeding ground for many seabirds having a large Puffin population. There is also an important seal colony here. The whole area is designated a National Nature Reserve.
