The base of the Downie’s Loup Sandstone, which is faulted out in the Gargunnock Burn section, is exposed farther west. It seems to be sharp and erosive in some localities, but in others there seems to be a passage by alternation. Francis ''et al''. (1970, p. 124) correlated this sandstone with the Spout of Ballagan Sandstone of the Campsie Fells. The section below is in rather inaccessible exposures either side of the waterfall, and '''considerable caution '''must be exercised when examining even the lowest beds. Polygonal, sand-filled, desiccation cracks and poorly preserved trace fossils may be observed in some parts of the section.
