 Farne Islands Pilot

"The islands are an erosion-resistant outcrop of basalt off the Northumberland coast. The group consists of 14 sizeable islands and numerous rocks, some of these are seen only at low water. To give an idea of scale, seven miles would complete a circumnavigation. The islands, a nature reserve of the National Trust, have no facilities and landing is allowed only on Inner Farne and Staple Island for a small fee. The attractions are the birds, (over seventeen species of seabirds breed regularly) the seals and the solitude. Images of the rugged islands and the sound of thousands of bickering seabirds will long stay in the visitorís memory."
