Caption: Carsaig Bay looking east, Mull, Argyllshire.
Description: The major landslip is typical of those found elswhere in the Inner Hebrides where Tertiary plateau basalts overlie Jurassic rocks, the latter act as the incompetent i.e. weaker rocks. Other examples include Dun Caan in Raasay and on the Trotternish peninsula in Skye. Jurassic rocks form the foreshore and extend well up the hillside, where they are overlain by Tertiary plateau basalts. The wooded rough ground on right is landslip. Part of a panorama with C03683. The description is for the full panorama.
