Description: Morrich More, 4.9 km. north-east of Tain, Ross & Cromarty. Sand advancing through wind-eroded temporarily fixed dunes. Foreground shows vegetation of area from which sand has recently been swept. The Morrich is a low-lying area of postglacial and recent sand ridges which are moving north-eastwards towards the sea from a well-marked postglacial cliff line. The growth seaward of the strand plain has been continuous for 7000 years since the Flandrian transgression.
