Coastal East Lothian : Near The Platform Edge at Dunbar
Coastal East Lothian : Near The Platform Edge at Dunbar
There are several tidal platforms at Dunbar dating from different periods in geological time. Here we are standing near the edge of a platform that coincides with the present-day inter-tidal zone.

This platform is cut in mixed tuffs and agglomerates and crossed by quartz-dolerite dykes, minor faults and distinctive rectangular fracture patterns that have produced numerous clefts and slot-like inlets.

In this view the tide is coming in very quickly - although we are still 3 hours away from high tide.
