Description: Oblique aerial view of the island of Ailsa Craig. Looking west. The flat triangular area in the foreground is a raised beach. The remains of the castle can just be seen. The raised beach has a degraded surface which varies from 7 m. to 12 m. above sea level, an altitude that fits the local isobase of the main Postglacial Flandrian marine transgression of 8000 years BP. The buildings on the raised beach are mainly those of the lighthouse complex.
