Bac Mòr – The Dutchmans Cap – Scotland

Scroll down to content


One of the many Isles that surround the West Coast of Scotland, Bac Mòr has to be one of the most striking ones to spot on the horizon.  Its one of the Treshnish Islands, you see it when you visit Staffa and then Lunga, where we had lunch with the Puffins in 2012.  It is sometimes called the Dutchmans Cap and is of ancient volcanic origin, and the peak in the middle is a former cone.  The low lying plain surrounding it is formed from a glassy lava field.   The little dots you can see in the photos are a mixture of birds, but quite a lot of puffins, which are wonderful to watch when they land.
