Summary[edit]

Front cover of: The excursion guide to the geology of the Isle of Skye. The Strathaird Peninsula of southern Skye, looking north. The flat-lying foreground consists of Middle Jurassic sedimentary rocks overlain, beyond the village of Elgol, by the more resistant Lower Tertiary lavas on Ben Cleat and Ben Meabost. To the west, at the head of Loch Scavaig, is the prominent ridge of Blaven, composed of layered rocks of the Cuillin Complex. To the east, at the head of Loch Slapin, are pale-weathering granites of the Eastern Red Hills Centre, intruded into white Cambro-Ordovician dolostones and Lower Jurassic sedimentary rocks.
