Description: A specimen of grey-reddish Durness Limestone from Loch Kishorn area. It is brittle with flinty fractures and red staining on some fractures. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7550. Durness Limestone belonging to Groups I and II crops out from beneath the Kishorn Thrust on the left bank of the River Kishorn from Seafield to 1 mile north of Tornapress. Ross and Cromarty contains little limestone and the only occurrences are those in the western part of the county where accessibility is poor. The principal types are metamorphic limestone in the Lewisian (Precambrian) of the Loch Maree district and the Cambrian dolomite in the vicinity of Ullapool and Loch Kishorn.
