Silversea Luxury Cruises A Cruise Bass Rock

Cruise Bass Rock

Bass Rock is a small island of steep volcanic cliffs reaching 107 meters (351 feet) up from sea level. Although it once housed a castle whose remains are still visible near the lighthouse, the island is now uninhabited except for seabirds. More than 150,000 Northern Gannets make this the largest single rock gannetry in the world. Because of its huge gannet colony, it is recognized as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. View more

Perhaps due to its rugged beauty that easily captures a viewer’s imagination, the Bass Rock has been featured in several works of fiction, including “Catriona” by Robert Louis Stevenson. The Bass Rock Lighthouse was constructed in an unusual feat of engineering back in 1902.
