Description: Cliff on south side of Lighthouse, Cape Wrath, Sutherland. Folds in banded Lewisian gneiss. Layering in lower part of cliff subhorizontal, with thinner, presumably basic, layers weathering more than more acid layers, and erosion concentrated along boundaries between rock types. Higher up cliff jointing more irregular. Just to left of lighthouse, layering in upper part of cliff dips steeply, and directly below lighthouse relatively tight folding is visible.
