Description: Port an Righ, 4.8 km. south-south-east of Hill of Fearn, Ross & Cromarty. Wave-cut platform in Jurassic sandstones and shales. Looking south. The Jurassic sandstones and shales in this area and further south at Ethie are one of the notable geological features of north-east Scotland. They are of Upper Oxfordian to Corallian in age and are faulted down against Middle Old Red Sandstone beds in the cliff behind, the dip of the Jurassic rocks being away from the fault. The cliff has a thick covering of boulder clay.
