Later this week, if the weather allows, Nick Hancock from Edinburgh will travel west from the Outer Hebrides to the tiny islet of Rockall, 230 miles out in the Atlantic. There, he hopes to break the record for the longest stay by remaining alone on the rock for sixty days. He will sleep and shelter in a survival pod made from a plastic water bowser, which will be bolted to the top of the rock.
