Robert Louis Stevenson used Bass Rock in one of his books (Catriona, the sequel to Kidnapped)I am wondering how to add mention of that here. If I knew of some other references in literature or movies, I would go ahead and add them. Maybe I will just do it later; right now I am finishing Catriona. I find it a very nice read ;) --Matthew K 23:42, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Minor quibble[edit]

It's universally referred to as the Bass Rock in North Berwick. Will move and rejig the text unless anyone objects.--Nydas 16:40, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Actually, forget it. Wikipedia naming conventions don't support it. --Nydas 21:07, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Correct name[edit]

What is more "correct" about calling it "Island of the Bass". As Nydas says above, its always called the Bass Rock. Where does this correct name come from, and what is the justification for saying its more correct? ::Supergolden:: 15:54, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

As far as I can recall it is known simply as the "Bass", but that is just me. I think this probably doesn't need a disamiguation page! Brendandh 00:40, 8 November 2006 (UTC).
The correct name is "The Bass". The ancient family who owned it for 600 years were designated "of The Bass" (although you occasionally find that shortened to "of Bass"). "Rock" didn't enter into it! Locals may well refer to it as the "Bass Rock", but we should have the correct name tied in so at least directing people who type in "The Bass" to this site.

  • I added a redirect; if someone searches wikipedia for The Bass they will end up here.

Great. Many thanks. Regards, David Lauder 20:31, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Castle[edit]

Added an early engraving of the castle. Clicking on the image will produce a good view. David Lauder 11:00, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Owner??[edit]

Have a read of this http://www.northberwick.org.uk/bass.html I'll return it to Sir Hew H-D. Brendandh (talk) 13:40, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I reverted the edit, because it was by an anonymous user (poss. yourself logged out), and was unreferenced. I don't usually trust those edits from past experience, but if it's verifiable, it can go back on. --MacRusgail (talk) 13:43, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
