NR7061 : Relict sea-stack

taken 3 years ago, near to Kilberry, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Relict sea-stack
Relict sea-stack
At one time this prominent rock would have been a small rocky island lying some distance from a shore with rocky cliffs, but relative lowering of sea level has left it stranded. It is one of several such features on this stretch of the Main Rock Platform, a 'fossilised' landscape feature well known in the Hebrides (see also NR7062 : Erosion platform with Jura). In the background can be seen both the extending platform and the relict cliff line. The sodden ground here supports a thick growth of Flag Iris and it is not easy walking.
