Siccar Point
Siccar Point
Taken from cliff top looking North. Siccar Point was the site of a Celtic hill fort, destroyed by quarrying operation for greywackes, used as road stone. The rocky promontory is famous for James Huttons observations, that provided conclusive evidence of geological evolution. More information here NT8170 : Hutton's Unconformity, Siccar Point.
