Origine del nome

Named after a tiny island 300 miles from Scotland and 290 miles from Ireland that is really more of a rock. Rochall is 65 feet tall, 100 feet long, and 83 feet wide. Using Turnberry Scotland as their airstrip, Rockall was used as a practice bombing target for pilots for Allied forces during WW II.
