Pillow Lavas
Pillow Lavas
The grey lumpy rock in the burn here was our reason for wading (I use the word advisedly) across the bog which makes up the river bank. It is considered to be deformed and metamorphosed pillow lava, which forms only when lava is erupted under water. Normally it is interpreted as meaning that it was erupted into the sea, but if the land was as waterlogged then as it was today, it could just as well have been erupted into this bog!
