Description: Glenashdale Falls, 2.146 km. west of Whiting Bay, south-east coast of Arran. Buteshire. A Tertiary dolerite sill intruded into Triassic sandstones, dipping upstream and giving rise to a waterfall. The view shows part of the Glenashdale composite sill. It is estimated to be about 64 metres thick in total and is formed of a lower felsite, the main quartz-dolerite, a feldspathic quartz-dolerite or craignurite and a upper felsite with sediment intercalations.
