Description: King's Cave, 1.5 km. north of Drumadoon, south-west Arran, Buteshire. Old sea caves cut into a cliff of massive Triassic sandstone at the edge of a raised beach. The postglacial raised beach is a marked feature on the coastline of Arran, and is typically c.10 metres above modern sea level. Marine erosion during the period of high sea level eroded the lower, softer sandstone to form caves where King Robert Bruce is said to have sheltered. Note the large-scale dune cross-bedding in the sandstones.
