Friday fold: the Scottish coast

Posted by Callan Bentley

Whilst searching the coastline of the U.K. for Where On Google Earth? #226, I found these lovely folds exposed in wave-cut platforms on the east coast of Scotland. I missed the actual location of the Google Earth screenshot (It was in Wales, and Anne Jefferson found it), but I’m happy enough to have found some sweet folds exposed in map view. Check them out:

The scene I found is very similar to a spot photographed by the other Allochthonian, Chris Rowan, in March. Here’s a Flash Earth link in case you want to scoot around with the Scots and check it out for yourself.

Happy Friday, everyone!
