NC2621 : Along the Traligill Thrust Plane

taken 9 months ago, near to Inchnadamph, Highland, Great Britain

Along the Traligill Thrust Plane
Along the Traligill Thrust Plane
The stream bed here is dry, water disappearing a little further up valley, although the underground stream does follow much the same line and can be heard at one shallow cave entrance. This is the line of the Traligill Thrust where dark grey limestones of an earlier period have been thrust over the top of the smoother pale limestones, which are younger. This area of limestone in Assynt is probably the largest area of such rock in Scotland.
