Caption: Brucite marble from Ledbeg, Assynt, Sutherland.
Description: Brucite marble from Ledbeg, Assynt, Sutherland. The marbles of Assnyt have long attracted attention of many previous writers on the geology of the district. This specimen is a fairly fine-grained whitish specimen. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7519. The localities where the marble occurs lie around, and nowhere more that one mile from, the Loch Borralan syenite complex, in particular, Cnoc na Sroine. The marble is formed by the contact metamorphism of the Durness Limestones by the intrusion. On the hillside above Ledbeg it is thought the marbles cover an area of c. 12 to 15 acres at a height varying between 200 and 400 feet above the level of the road.
