Description: The Durness Limestone, or more correctly the Durness Group is a series of limestones, dolomitic limestones and dolomites. They outcrop in the Torran area and adjoin the Beinn an Dubhaich granite which has created a metamorphic aureole and converted some of the limestones and dolomites to marbles and brucite marbles respectively. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7512. This specimen is an unaltered limestone. Apart from three restricted dolomitic areas the whole of the Durness Limestone outcrop outside the aureole is composed of limestones with thin dolomitic bands and is often heavily charged with chert.
