Description: Sarclet Haven, 7.242 km. south of Wick. Cliffs of the Old Red Sandstone Sarclet Sandstone Formation with a back-wall of shelly boulder clay deposited during the last glaciation. A ruined building is seen just above high water mark. The uninterrupted profile in the background shows that the hollow is part of a pre-glacial trough formerly filled with boulder clay but now excavated by the sea. The rocks in this area are extensively fractured probably due to the convergence of the Helmsdale, Great Glen and Wick fault systems immediately offshore.
