Sight / landmark

Situated next to a working quarry, this headland has a complex multistage history of moving magma. Beyond the lighthouse built in 1938, the headland stretches out into the sea in a spine of different coloured rocks.

More Information

Depending on the light, you can pick out the pink aplogranite, dark diorite and greyish hornblende gabbro. These contrasting rocks are what’s left of a magma chamber. Looking at these rocks shows how magmas of a similar age elsewhere may have formed.
