Old photograph number: B00276
Caption: Pladda Island, south-east coast of Arran. Buteshire.
Description: A distant view of the 800 metre long and 21 metre high island of Pladda, formed almost entirely of a quartz-dolerite sill and also showing the rock-notch above a raised beach. In the foreground are dolerite dykes on foreshore. The lighthouse stands on the Tertiary columnar quartz-dolerite sill. The old cliff line and marine terrace are of the Main Postglacial Shoreline age, formed during submergence of the land which followed Boreal times. Since this time there has been a fall in sea level.
