Description: At the Clett, Holborn Head. Caithness. The top of the Clett, or rectangular flat-topped stack of horizontally-bedded flagstones is in the background. A 'blow-hole' or 'gloup' is seen in the foreground. Caves are excavated along the strongly developed joints in the flagstones. When, due to the extreme hydraulic pressures of the wave-compressed air, the roof of the cave falls in at the landward end, a natural chimney or 'blow-hole' can be formed. A bridge can be left to the seaward side.
