Geological dyke crossing the Overtoun Burn
Geological dyke crossing the Overtoun Burn
In this photograph, a fragment of the dyke stands to the right of the small falls. The volcanic rock of which it is composed is more resistant to erosion than the sedimentary strata that can be seen on the left; those strata are of interest in their own right: NS4377 : Ballagan Beds in Overtoun Glen.

Compare NS4278 : Geological dyke crossing glen of the Black Burn, located not far away. However, the most spectacular example is almost 2 kilometres to the WNW: NS4178 : The Gates of Sodom.

The feature shown in the present photograph is shown in context, from further away, in NS4377 : The Overtoun Burn.
