Fault Breccia
Fault Breccia
This ridge of rock stands proud on the shore at right angles to most of the other rocks. It is a fault breccia, that is, rock ground up and fragmented along the line of a fault, and then relithified. In the far distance, beyond the Firth of Forth, is the conical shape of North Berwick Law in NT5584.
