Description: Baked blaes from Clatteringwell Quarry, Bishop Hill, c. one mile north-east of Kinnesswood, Kinrossshire. The quarry worked the Carboniferous Charlestown Main Limestone and formed an outlier of the summit of Bishop Hill, resting on the top of a quartz-dolerite sill about 250 feet thick. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7537. The limestone is c. 10 feet thick and probably does not exceed 15 feet. The overburden consists for the most part of the baked blaes, baked carbonaceous shale. The baked blaes were between five and twenty feet thick. Blaes is a local Scottish term for baked carbonaceous shale. It has been baked by the heat of intrusion of the underlying sill.
