Caption: Limestone from the Torran area, Strath, Skye, Invernessshire.
Description: The Cambro-Ordovician Durness Limestone rocks of the Torran area consist of dolomites, limestones and contact-altered rocks, mostly marbles and brucite marbles. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7514. This specimen is an unaltered limestone. Outside the contact aureole the limestones all present a remarkably similar appearance, dull, medium or dark grey, very fine-grained rocks with, invariably random white streaks, wisps and veins of calcite. In general, the limestones contain chert nodules, they are usually common and occur in rows along the bedding planes projecting as ragged knobs from weathered surfaces.
