Siccar Point
Siccar Point
The headland, famed in the history of geology, seen from the east. There is a striking colour contrast between the Silurian greywackes and the red sandstone laid unconformably upon them some 90 million years later. This is known as Hutton's Unconformity and Hutton's observations here led to questioning the orthodoxy that everything was created almost at once - very recently.
