Description: Cove Harbour, 1.1 km. north-east of Cockburnspath, Berwickshire. Cliff in Carboniferous sandstones. Cliff of moderately dipping sandstones and shales of the Strathclyde Group (formerly Calciferous Sandstone Measures), overlain by glacial deposits (sand and gravel between boulder clay). The latter are poorly consolidated and have a natural slope angle of much less than vertical and the vegetation cover is probably helping to stabilize the slope. Note old sea caves at the foot of the sandstone cliff. Carboniferous strata in the Cockburnspath to Dunbar area rest on Silurian rocks of the Southern Uplands terrane and form the landward margin of a large basin which extends eastwards into the North Sea.
