Fissured promontory at Seaton Cliffs
Fissured promontory at Seaton Cliffs
This unnamed feature is not visible from the Seaton Cliffs Nature Trail but it can be seen, as in the photo, by looking southwestwards from a position nearer to the Deil's Heid. The open cleft in the headland results from erosion along a line of weakness caused by a small, seaward dipping, fault plane. Further erosion of the headland, along the line of weakness, would result in another stack similar to the nearby Deil's Heid.
