Subject notes
Waves have eroded the sea cliff, leaving a wave-cut platform in front of it. Later it has been raised up due to isostatic uplift.

During the Ice Age, the weight of ice depressed the level of the land. From the time the Forth glacier melted, Central Scotland has been rising up, resulting in raised beaches. These occur primarily at 25 and 100 feet (7.5 and 30m).
