Description: 0.8 km. or so north of Whiting Ness, 1.9 km. east-north-east of Arbroath, Angus. Typical coastal scenery in Lower Old Red Sandstone (Lower Devonian) rocks. A close-up view of a cliff of Lower Old Red Sandstone. Marine erosion is cutting back the coastline by taking advantage of the joint planes and eroding caves. The boulder clay at the top of the cliff is more than 15 m. above sea-level and is being removed by sea and wind erosion.
