At the estuary, clays and silts give way to sands and gravels, then bordering the sea and extending up and down the coast are blown sands. Bass Rock a phonolitic trachyte plug in the distance. Looking north-west. The photograph shows estuary sedimentation at the mouth of the Peffer Burn and the late-glacial sand and gravel raised beach at Seacliff just beyond Scoughall.
