NX0937 : Raised beach

taken 6 years ago, near to Clanyard, Dumfries And Galloway, Great Britain

Raised  beach
Raised beach
The west coast of the Rhins only has isolated lengths of raised beach, and this is a quite spectacular section. Another fine length is at Ardwell bay, NX0745 : Raised beach. The great antiquity of the formation is indicated by the prolific growth of lichen on the cobbles, which shows that it is never moved by wave action. It is distressing to see that this very special formation is being dug for hardcore and destroyed.
