Granite rock formed from a massive magma intrusion at the centre of the Cheviot area of volcanism. Overlying lavas were eroded away from the central region leaving the granite core. Surrounding this is a metamorphic aureole where intense heat altered the andesite rock, in places making it more resistant to weathering or more friable.
