Sule Stack's Numbers
Sule Stack, which from this angle looks like a double rock, is within the administrative area of Orkney, rises to 121' and is the home to a colony of around pairs of 4000 gannets. At one time the Royal Navy used it for firing practice as indicated by an unexploded shell found there, but for the most part the birds are left in peace and have not been subjected to culling.
