Description: South side of Cove Harbour, 1.1 km. north-east of Cockburnspath, Berwickshire. Sea stack in Carboniferous sandstones. Sandstones of Strathclyde Group (formerly Calciferous Sandstone Measures) dipping steeply northwards near a fault. The sandstones are sufficiently hard to have formed a sea stack, here punctured by wave action to form a natural tunnel or arch. 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.
