Description: Gamrie Bay, 10.5 km. east of Banff. A view of the whole bay with Gardenstown in the centre, Crovie just visible in the distance. Taken from near More Head looking north-east. Bay cut out of Middle Old Red Sandstone beds (the softer and less resistant rock); the headlands on each side, the harder and more resistant rocks, are formed of greywackes and shales of the Macduff Slate Formation, Southern Highland Group of the Dalradian Supergroup. (Previously known as the Highland Metamorphic Series.) Gardenstown, a fishing village was founded in 1720 by Alexander Garden Esq. of Troup.
