Description: Bass Rock from Seacliff Harbour, East Lothian. The islet is a volcanic plug composed of a non-porphyritic, orthophyric, fairly coarse-grained phonolitic trachyte, an intrusion related to the Garleton Hills Volcanic Rocks. The rocks in the foreground are red-stained bedded tuffs, pyroclastic rocks that form the basal beds of the Carboniferous Garleton Hills Volcanic Rocks. The rocks are cut by joints and carbonate veins.
