The Bass Rock under attack - 1694
Here is a postcard of the Bass Rock in the Firth of
Forth off North Berwick, by Reginald Phillimore. A man-of-war ship
fires at King James' castle on the Bass Rock.
The inscription on the bottom of the postcard reads:
"The Bass Rock: the last
fortress that held out for King James,
surrendered 1694 after a siege of three years."
Reginald Philimore painted many views of this rock,
which he could see from his studio in North Berwick.
