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 in foreground. It can be traced to left of boulders beside figure, and extends across sandy area. The margins are darker-coloured and finer-grained than the centre. Joints in dyke are only a few cm. apart. Veins of ?calcite have been intruded within and along contact of dyke. Agglomerate consists of basaltic fragments up to 1 m. across set in a fine-grained basaltic matrix, which is much softer than the basalt of the dyke. Joints in agglomerate are very widely spaced, and many are filled with calcite or quartz.
