In the Leask area, to the north-east of Ellon, there are three lithologically distinctive till units belonging to each of the main drift groups in the region ([[Media:P915376.png|P915376]] and [[Media:P915377.png|P915377]]). Two of these tills may predate the Late Devensian. Several sites, including ‘Bellscamphie’, provide evidence of the pattern and timing of movement of three major ice masses affecting eastern Buchan [[Media:P915297.png|(P915297)]].
