On the right is a channel through the rocks; at its far end is what a SCAPE report (cited at the end of the item NS3180 : Cladoch) identifies as a "boat noost" (also spelled "noust"), which is a kind of bad-weather stance for boats that have been hauled up the beach [see, for example, the Dictionary of the Scots Language, under the headword "noust"]. Another one is located not far to the north. They lie on the course of a path that leads around Ardmore Point.

For an example (elsewhere) of one that is intact, see HU2646 : Noust.

In the background, on the left, is the area of shore from (r-l) Craigendoran, through Helensburgh, to Rhu.
