Coordinates : 56.077432,-2.640545 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : mainly in large numbers the Sules, even if the island also houses other species in number absolutely minor and would say without guarantee of finding a distance of time the same species. a short distance (closest to the port) there is another small island with fewer inhabitants (no boobies) but greater variety of puffins, cormorants, guillemots ...

Recommended equipment : if it goes around the boat without landing, I'd say the 200 forward (preferably a 300). Even with a 200, you make the picture because the boat is very close. Preferable to zoom in for close subjects. Of course the boat there are difficulties related to the oscillation, but also to the many heads of the tourists who get up. If, however, you disembark, take both the telephoto and wide-angle (almost walking between the birds).

Best months : I would say for nesting from mid June to end of July or so.

How to get there : Recommended air travel "low cost" up to Edinburgh (airport) or Glasgow or NewCastle. From there, the rental car to get to the port of North Berwick or Dunbar (see item views).

Visits : Option 1: Unless the days of bad weather, I would say sails daily during the breeding season, a boat from the port of North Berwick that leads to go around the island without landing but coming very close to the island itself. There are blackboards at the port of North Berwick with an indication of the times, as the harbor is dry at low tide, so the departure time always varies. Since the weather is highly variable, even in this brief tour (I seem to remember a couple of hours) bring clothing anti-wind and anti-rain. The cost is low, less than 10 pounds and then I think it is a must-do. These boats have no ties with the Seabird Centre I'm talking about later. Option 2: Inquire in advance by the Seabird Centre (http://www.seabird.org) for day visit. About 6-7 times a month (dates default) organize photographic journeys departing from the port of Dunbar (not far from North Berwick), lasting about 5 hours, 3 of which are to be passed on the island. The landing is linked to the approval of the captain on sea conditions. We carry the mail that I had sent the multiplex to describe this possibility: Journey Details - Your journey will begin in the picturesque fishing town of Dunbar. A 'lively' Kittiwake colony has taken over a wall of Dunbar Castle that overlooks the Harbour. Your guide will meet you next to the RNLI shop in the harbour to register you going onto the boat and provide you with a life jacket. At a steady speed you will begin your transfer out to Bass Rock, which will take approximately one hour. On arrival at the Bass, the Skipper and the Guide will assess the landing stages and decide if it is safe to land. If it is not safe to land the skipper will sail around the rock and proceed to the Gannet Feeding - A refund of 50% of your ticket will be issued if we cannot land. When landed your Guide will conduct a safety briefing prior to opening the gate within the battlements. Weather permitting you will have 3 hours on the rock and access up to the foot of the Gannet colony (St Baldred's Chapel). Your guide will be on hand to ensure that no disturbance is made to the nesting Gannets. Upon leaving the rock the boat will move to the feeding experience. The Skipper will commence 'chumming'. This lasts approximately 15 minutes. The Gannets will begin to dive just metres off the edge of the boat, at around 60 miles per hour. Your journey draws to an end as we arrive back in Dunbar. Once ashore, your Guide will collect your life jackets and wish you a safe journey home. Journey Summary - Total Time: 5.5 hours Time on Bass Rock 3 hours Cost: ?85 per person (No concession rate) and ?75 for members only Extra: Chumming (High speed Gannet dives off the edge of the boat) - included in the price. // Option 3: If the date on which it is scheduled to travel with the Seabird Centre is not compatible with your period of stay in Scotland, you can set (at least 1-2 days in advance) a survey similar to the one described, complete with landing on the island, always negotiating with the center of the trip. Always starting from the port of Dunbar. Since, however, is a navigation performed at your request, the cost is certainly higher than planned (we have asked if I remember correctly 100 an hour, then at least 5-600 pounds divided by the number of participants).

Notes : The island is close enough to Edinburgh (less than 1 hour drive from the port). The nearest town is North Berwick from which the island is clearly seen in the short distance. If you talk to people who have been years ago at Bass Rock, will tell you that going to the harbor is the boat to the island with little money and makes you disembark. This was true until a few years ago. You have now created the Seabird Centre, which has a monopoly of landings. Overnight in the best bed & breakfast, the cost of which is quite related to the place: if you take it on the beach definitely cost something more than the inside or outside town (North Berwick has become quite tourist at first sight). The town is pretty and lends itself to some shots. As the Scottish weather is very changeable, organizatevi days in advance to handle any "death" where you can not sail: either perndete something to pass the time in the room, or you scored a few visits to do nearby (castles, etc.). Clearly not you make a trip to Scotland for a week at least (be sure to catch at least a few days of good weather), only to Bass Rock. Then add some other cards. In the field of natural elements of interest are different. The only one we did was the turn of the Farne Islands (of which I speak here, south of Bass Rock in the north of England (1 hour drive).
