you might wish to join the 1.5 hours boat trip to Bass Rock from North Berwick:


The island plays host to more than 150,000 northern gannets and is the world’s largest colony of the species. Described famously by naturalists as “one of the wildlife wonders of the world” (often credited to Sir David Attenborough),[28] it was also awarded BBC Countryfile Magazine’s Nature Reserve of the Year, following a nomination by Chris Packham, in 2014/15. When viewed from the mainland, large regions of the surface appear white owing to the sheer number of birds (and their droppings, which give off 152,000 kg of ammonia per year, equivalent to the achievements of 10 million broilers).[29] In fact the scientific name for the northern gannet, Morus bassanus, derives from the rock. It was known traditionally in Scots as a “solan goose”. As on other gannetries, such as St Kilda, the birds were harvested for their eggs and the flesh of their young chicks, which were considered delicacies. It is estimated that in 1850 almost 2,000 birds were harvested from the rock. Other bird species that frequent the rock include guillemotrazorbillshagpuffineider and numerous gulls.[30]

The natural history of the rock was written about almost five hundred years ago in John Mair‘s De Gestis Scotorum (“The deeds of the Scots”), published in 1521.[31] Today, the Scottish Seabird Centre at North Berwick has solar-powered cameras located on the island which beam back live close-up images of the seabirds to large screens on the mainland, just over a mile away. The images are sharp enough for visitors at the Seabird Centre to read the ID rings on birds’ feet.[32] The Seabird Centre has a range of cameras located on the islands of the Forth and also broadcasts the images live on the internet.[33] The Centre also has exclusive landing rights to the island from the owner Sir Hew Hamilton-Dalrymple and operates a range of boat trips going around, and landing on, the island throughout the year, weather permitting.[34]
