Part of the Coastline, John O'Groats

Postcard showing part of the coastline near John O'Groats.

The picture shows sea stacks. Sea stacks are blocks of erosion-resistant rock isolated from the land by sea. Sea stacks begin as part of a headland or sea cliff. Relentless pounding by waves erodes the softer, weaker parts of a rock first, leaving harder, more resistant rock behind.
