NX0644 : The Hooies

3 km from Clachanmore, Dumfries And Galloway, Great Britain

The Hooies
The Hooies
These minor promontories have an intriguing name, but the main interest here is the thick layer of till (boulder clay) sitting on a level rock platform. The pink-coloured till is being eroded very actively at the head of a narrow inlet which is continually drawing down material from higher levels.
