Description: Shore between Kildonan and Bennan Head, south coast of Arran. Buteshire. A view along the coast illustrating the large number of Tertiary dolerite dykes of the Arran Dyke Swarm cutting Triassic sandstones. The emplacement of the dykes occurred during a phase of igneous activity c. 60 million years ago. On Arran it was associated with the intrusion of sills and the central igneous complex of the Northern Granite. The igneous activity on Arran was in turn part of a much greater Tertiary igneous province covering Skye, Mull, Rum, Ardnamurchan, Northern Ireland and several offshore centres such as St. Kilda.
