Clett Rock, Holburn Head, Thurso

Postcard showing Clett Rock at Holburn Head in Thurso.

Clett Rock is a sea stack that stands 400 feet high.

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.
