A continuous cliff section from the Rhaetic (Triassic) in the foreground up to the Jurassic Great Oolite on the distant hill top. The ridge running into the sea in the centre is the Lower Lias Limestone while behind is a major landslipped mass. The flat-topped peak on the left is Dun Caan, it has a capping of Tertiary plateau basalt on top of Great Oolite. Note the moored yachts in the bay.
