NG2840 : Dyke from the shore

taken 9 years ago, near to Harlosh, Highland, Great Britain

Dyke from the shore
Dyke from the shore
This basalt dyke stands some 15 feet high above the slightly softer rock that surrounds it.
Its height is sufficient to keep the top above the high tide mark, and grass is growing well there.
The water is Loch Bracadale. The island in the background to the right is Tarner.
