For another view, where more of the structure is visible, and for the main description of the yair, see NS3377 : Geilston Yair.

What was exposed at the time of the present photograph is a structure a little like a sea-wall, densely covered with mussels; the few areas of rock left free of these are mostly encrusted with barnacles instead.

The dark line visible underneath the far shore of the River Clyde is Pillar Bank, also shown here: NS3376 : Shore near Cardross.
