Scotland's rocky coastline
Scotland's coasts and seas are beautiful and very varied. There are the rocky shores in the west coastline (see also: Most beautiful coastline in the world). There are several cliff-top blow-holes. The coast has a complex geology, and the sea has exploited the softer rocks and lines of weakness to produce a spectacularly varied landscape. Structural features of sea cliffs include not only the expected caves and overhangs, but also spectacular natural arches and bridges, and even flying buttresses. There are several cliff-top blow-holes. In the east, the predominantly low-lying coastline is dominated by sandy beaches.
