Dumbarton Rock: steep slopes of White Tower Crag
The picture was taken from Dumbarton Castle's Bower Battery (see NS3974 : Dumbarton Rock: Bower Battery), and is a view towards the summit of the White Tower Crag (for which, see NS3974 : Dumbarton Rock: White Tower Crag).

The steep slopes featured some interesting lichens. In particular, see NS3974 : A lichen - Lasallia pustulata, where the features of this rock face that make it particularly suitable for this species are noted.
