Description: Culbin sand-hills. Morayshire. Raised storm beach shingle ridges being scoured in advance of the migrating dunes. The steep faces of the blown sand and the wind-ripples in the foreground indicate that the sand-drift is almost towards observer, i.e. from west to east. The raised storm beach shingle ridges form the backbone of the Culbin Foreland. The shingles form curved ridges, spits and bars and were deposited during storms with one of the biggest influences being the east to west longshore drift of the Moray Firth.
