Cliff above tributary of the Queenzie Burn
Cliff above tributary of the Queenzie Burn
The cliff face shows an exposure of dark shales with bands of ironstone nodules which are stratigraphically just above the Blackhall Limestone (Lower Carboniferous), which is exposed in the burn below. A thin band of sandstone lies above the shales and runs along the top of the cliff. A few blocks of this can be seen lying on the lower surface where they have fallen down.
