Eathie beach near Cromarty, Black Isle, Moray Firth, NE Scotland,

The beach is of geological sientific interest and so rock hammers to outcrops is not allowed. Normally small ammonite are a common find within the slate like sediment layer on low tide iv never seen an example bigger than a finger nail until now. This example was found under a giant boulder where the tide had eaten out a hollow underneath was just sitting there partially covered in clay like sediment.

An interesting area to find something in. You don't hear much about Scottish fossils outside of the Isle of Skye.
Thanks, VF

There are lots of areas but because skye is a hot tourist destination everywhere else gets overlooked.
