Gustheight Rock

A wind-beaten promontory just north of Greenwater Cove that marks the mainland’s closest spot to Taikasaari. From amidst the severely weathered ring of stones that crown its top, the World Beacon is clearly visible down to its base, and just behind the horizon the many lights of the city glimmered by day and shone brightly at night.

The stone ring, called The Weatherfingers by the locals due to its wind-rounded stones, is older than anyone can remember. Although they seem to once have been great monuments, the standing stones are now little taller than a man at most, and some are low enough to sit upon.

At the foot of Gustheight Rock there is a narrow sandy beach accessible by a narrow footpath that winds its way down the cliffside. The many-hued Rainbow Reef prevents all but the most shallow-bottomed of boats from landing on the beach, but is frequented by fishermen who are after the Reef’s bountiful marine life.
