description {{|1=Map of sheared Moine protolith exposed at Locality 14.2, to the south of Torcastle. The inset is a schematic diagram to show the interpreted geometric relationship between the main vertical sinistral shear zones and subordinate dextral antithetic shears. The latter are thought to have formed by ?bookshelf? faulting where low strain domains between the main shear zones have experienced horizontal anticlockwise rotations. From: Fig. 14.3. Strachan, Rob et al. Editors. 2010. A geological excursion guide to the Moine geology of the Northern Highlands of Scotland.
