A Sunday Landing
On Sunday 8 September 1811 the HMS Endymion approached what has become Britains's most isolated extremity and Lieutenant Basil Hall made the first recorded landing on Rockall. The event of some 200 years ago has been commemorated by an underwater survey of the islet and of nearby Helen's Reef. Find out more in the account in the Stornoway Gazette.
