Bass Rock

With an incredible past, the Bass Rock has played a key role throughout the history of Scotland. A religious retreat during the early years of Christianity. A fortress and prison in the age of the Covenanters and Jacobites. A strategic stronghold during the times of the Scottish and English wars. Notably it has been owned by the Hamilton-Dalrymple family for the last 300 years.
