NS3475 : Shore near Ardoch - view east

near to Cardross, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Shore near Ardoch - view east
Shore near Ardoch - view east
This barnacle-covered rock provided a useful reference point from which to take several photos. The images were taken near low tide; this area was not above water for very long.

The River Clyde is well over a mile wide at this point, where it is opening out into an estuary. The navigable channel to the south, deepened long ago by dredging, is much narrower.

Dumbarton Rock is visible on the skyline, a little left of centre; it stands on the northern shore of the Clyde. Although it is too distant to be visible in this image, the Erskine Bridge can also be seen from here, just to the right of the Rock.

For other pictures taken from the same spot, see: NS3475 : Shore near Ardoch - view NW and NS3475 : Shore near Ardoch - view north. After this, I headed to the shore, briefly visiting an old fish yair on the way: NS3576 : Ardoch Yair.
