East Lothian Landscape : Markle Quarry - view from southern edge of quarry
East Lothian Landscape : Markle Quarry - view from southern edge of quarry
Markle Quarry appears much larger than the OS 1:50,000 and 1:25,000 maps suggest. In particular I think that the southern edge (from where this view was taken) is further south than mapped. To get a sense of the scale of the picture note the 2 dumper trucks on the lower quarry level in the left middle distance, the conifers atop the distant crag on the left and the mature deciduous trees atop the distant crag on the right of the picture.
