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.

  6. So very cool. Scotland is our one regret... we did not make it there while we lived in Europe. My favorite shot is the egg shaped stone too... it looks like and Easter basket.

  15. I really really love this. The State of Oregon on the Pacific Coast has rugged beaches (almost this rugged) ... We lived there for years and still spend summers there ...here in Florida, the ocean is calmer and doesn't even feel like an Ocean really. Thanks for the beautiful photography!
