The main reason we went to Castle Cove was to look for these patterns in the cliffs. Based on the pictures in Written In Stone, I assumed that the whole cliff would have that pattern, like Urquhart Bluff. In reality, a small section of the cliffs were like this – and you could only see them on the right section of the cliffs.
When you get to the beach, turn to your right. There are a section of cliffs that are different in colour to the other ones. I’m not sure what they look like in decent lighting, however the sun was too bright for us to fully enjoy how beautiful they were.
These patterns are often found at the bottom of the cliffs, in sections that are about 50cm wide. Some are higher or larger.
It is well worth exploring in depth. I recommend getting there when the tide is at its lowest and that you constantly keep an eye on it. In this particular section, you could get blocked off quickly.
