The chequered face of the cliff here is the result of concretions (the pale grey blocks) forming in the limestone leaving bands of unconsolidated material (the thin brown bands).

Between 1912 and 1916 iron ore was extracted from ironstones that outcrop in the southern part of the Isle of Raasay. Extensive ruins of the workings and associated buildings continue to disfigure the landscape of the island.
