Only a few of the 110 people who have landed there over 200 years ago, survived more than one night.

It is an island 230 mile west of Outer Hebrides, 100ft in width and 70ft tall. In 2000 it was pounded with 95ft sea waves.

The former soldier Cam lives in an 11 ft by 4-ft pod.

The marine scientist arrived by boat on an island five days earlier with two buddies who stayed for two nights in order to broadcast live from the island.

He hopes to raise £50,000 for Armed Forces charities with his stay.

Cam said: “Lockdowns made me feel remote, isolated and alone.

“It got me thinking, ‘Can I challenge myself further and do some good?’ Rockall popped up.”
