West side - boulders below the road onto gravel and sand. East side - rocky and steep, heavily covered in fucoids. Mollusc fauna unremarkable except to note that the small colony of Leucophytia bidentata still present. There was a larger than usual variety of other phyla, particularly Porifera, anemones, Polychaeta and ascidians. Many brittlestars, with hordes of O. nigra lurking underneath the broad fronds of L. saccharina. The chief polychaete habitat was in muddy crevices and puddles underneath boulders at LW - FABELLIGERA community.

Heavy cover of fucoids passing down into L. saccharina and boulders with M. stellatus and F. lumbricalis. Richness of shore patchy, very few species near the sewage pipe, while only about 50 m to the N was an interesting fauna, less rich, however, than at the mouth of Caol Scotnish. 100 - 200 m S of the sewage pipe an area of gravelly sand exposed at LW. This contained L. inhaerens at a density of about 100 per squ. m calculated by counting their pocks in the sand surface.

Under the cobbles is permanently damp gravel (NEREIS DIVERSICOLOR community). Below this is a fringe of larger boulders (FUCUS SERRATUS zone) passing down into a flat, partly exposed at ELW, in part composed of pebbles and in part of coarse sand (DOSINIA EXOLETA community). Further out there was Z. marina growing on pebbles. NOTE: Substratum % data are converted from the original substratum 1-3 scoring system.
