Salisbury Crags
Salisbury Crags
The Crags are a sill - a single sheet of tough dolerite. The dolerite formed long after the eruption of the nearby Arthurís Seat volcano, by the process of magma intrusion deep underground. Magma rose to this level, then spread out horizontally, forcing its way between layers of existing rock. For more information see LinkExternal link.
