Warped Andesite Dyke in the south wall of Kemnay Quarry
Warped Andesite Dyke in the south wall of Kemnay Quarry
Look hard at the wall and you will see a worm-like intrusion - - most probably placed when the granite now making up the quarry (Paradise Hill) was still molten allowing the dyke to deform and then solidify. There are numerous other sills and at least 2 other dykes.
