NN5825 : Basalt intrusion

taken 13 years ago, near to Lochearnhead, Stirling, Great Britain

Basalt intrusion
Basalt intrusion
The rocks in Glen Ogle are mainly schists, but here some basalts have been intruded into the older rock. I don't know the age of the igneous rock, but a lot of sheets and dykes in the Highlands date to the great volcanic era in the Tertiary when Ardnamurchan, Skye and Mull were active.
The road is a shepherd's/estate track to the plateau on the east side of Glen Ogle.
