Description: Culbin sand-hills. Morayshire. Successive storm beaches on a raised beach swept clear of advancing sand. A large dome-like dune in the distance. The direction of sand-drift is almost towards observer, i.e. from west to east. The advancing sand-hill in the distance was known as Lady Culbin. 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.
