The Glencoul Thrust from Loch Glendhu
The Glencoul Thrust from Loch Glendhu
The slanting line is a boundary between old Lewisian gneiss above and younger Cambrian quartzite, over which the gneiss has been pushed bodily about 30km by mountain-building movements as the Iapetus Ocean finally closed over 400 million years ago. For more on the spectacular geology of this and other parts of the Highlands, see 'Land of Mountain and Flood' by A McKirdy, J Gordon and R Crofts (Birlinn, 2009).
