Description: Ardross shore, 3 km. east of Elie, Fifeshire. Vertical basalt dyke traversing the agglomerate of 'Ardross Neck'. Basaltic dyke is about 3 m. wide, and forms the ridge extending across the photo. The margins are darker-coloured and finer-grained than the centre. Joints in dyke are only a few cm. apart. Agglomerate forms rest of view. Basaltic fragments up to 0.3 m. across are set in a fine-grained basaltic matrix, which is much softer than the basalt of the dyke. Joints in agglomerate are very widely spaced.
