Bass Rock from Tantallon Castle Pictures and Photographs
This is a photograph taken from the grounds of Tantallon castle, part of which provides a "frame" for the distant Bass Rock.
Bass Rock is a rocky outpost (not really but almost an island) off the coast of Scotland lying in the Firth of Forth. Comprising a lighthouse and a huge seabird population, this outpost also played host to military barracks/ castle and a small chapel church at one time.
The white colouring on the rock isn't snow nor paint. It is the inevitable remnants of 40,000 gannets feeding!
This is part of a collection of Scottish photographs which show the variety of landscapes, buildings and natural features which make up the country of scotland.
