Bedruthan Step: Samaritan Island
Bedruthan Step: Samaritan Island
One of several huge stacks of Middle Devonian slates on this beach. At high tide this rock is surrounded by several feet of water.

Samaritan Island is named after the ship "The Good Samaritan" which was wrecked here in 1846.

The scale of the stack can be estimated from the young couple walking underneath it at the left.
