Lewisian Gneiss
This large lump of folded metamorphic rock is one of the oldest rocks in the world and could be some 570 million years old. It takes its name from the Isle of Lewis where it was first noted and sits in a geological garden alongside other large rock samples. Beyond is the old bridge over the River Helmsdale and the clock tower.
