Syncline at Ardmore Point
Syncline at Ardmore Point
[This is the first of three photos that, when seen side by side, form a seamless panorama of a syncline at Ardmore Point. This photo shows the leftmost part of the view.]

A syncline is a down-fold in rock, forming a trough-like shape. The red sandstone visible near the left-hand edge of this photo is therefore tilted; it is higher on the left, where it is further from the centre of the syncline.

In the background, on the far side of the River Clyde, is the area around Port Glasgow.
