Description: Coast, 2.4 km. north-east of Arbroath, Angus. An arch formed in Upper Old Red Sandstone conglomerate driven along the line of a fault which has evidently determined the south side of the headland. The effect of marine erosion along the fault has given rise to both the arch and the stacks beyond. The lack of joints in the Upper Old Red Sandstone and the different lithology has produced a completely different more rounded form to the coast compared to the strongly jointed Lower Old Red Sandstone cliffs seen in C02491 and C02492.
