Description: A little over 0.8 km. north of Whiting Ness, 1.9 km. east of Arbroath, Angus. Fallen-in sea caves in Lower Old Red Sandstone (Lower Devonian) rocks. The formation of a 'gloup' or blowhole (on the right) and 'geo' (on the left) by marine erosion taking advantage of the joint planes in the Lower Old Red Sandstone to erode caves. The 'gloup' cave has fallen in to landwards leaving part of the roof as a bridge, whereas in the other case, the geo, it has collapsed all the way.
