For context, and for the main description of the site, see NS3178 : Ardmore fault plane.

Slickensides are surfaces marked by movement at the fault plane. In this photograph, they show grooves that are sloping down towards the lower-right corner of the image, and that are inclined about 25 from horizontal.

(Compare NS3178 : Slickensides at Ardmore fault plane, an earlier photograph of the same markings, taken under less favourable lighting conditions.)

The line of the fault can be seen near the shore, as can the slickensides that were produced by the displacement of the rocks on one side relative to the other.
