Basalt dyke at Sauchie
Basalt dyke at Sauchie
The northern most of two parallel basalt dykes, about 500m apart, running approximately E-W across country for about 50km, in the base Lower Old Red Sandstone conglomerate of the area. They are not much use for normal agriculture, but fenced off from the arable/grazing land this one is fine for keeping pigs, that do well in the rocky scrubby strip NN9319 : Pigs at Sauchie Farm.
