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. A close-up view. The waterfall is formed by the water falling over the harder, resistant quartz-dolerite and eroding away the softer Triassic sedimentary rocks beneath. In the cycle of river valley development the waterfall will eventually retreat up the valley, lose height and degrade to rapids and eventually smooth out entirely.
