Dún Briste, from the Irish meaning “Broken Fort”, was once joined to the mainland. The sea stack stands 45 metres (150 feet) tall.
As the stack is safe from any land based predators, it is a safe haven for an array of bird species at nesting time, including Kittiwakes, Cormorants and Puffins.
It is widely accepted that an arch leading to the rock collapsed during very rough sea conditions in 1393.
