The Hooies
The Hooies, taken 5 years ago
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.
