Soldiers Rock

Sea stack on Islay
Soldiers Rock

Soldiers Rock stands guard along the North coast at the Mull of Oa with a white military belt of quartz. It has been formed over thousands of years, exposed to the sea, wind and rain. The tall column of rock or sea stack is located at the southern end of Laggan Bay. Soldiers Rock can only be reached by boat or by taking a scenic, if not slightly rugged, walk from Kintra.
