Description: The Rock and Spindle sea stack, part of the Kinkell Ness neck, 3 km. east of St. Andrews. Fifeshire. The circular 'Spindle' is formed of xenolithic, columnar-jointed basanite and the stack behind it (the 'Rock') is formed of basanitic breccia. The stack and the cliffs behind are made of bedded tuff and agglomerate. Similar material below the 'Spindle' shows collapse structures. A dyke-like intrusion of basanite extends down from the lower left part of the 'Spindle'.
