Description: Eas Mor, Auchenhew Burn, 2.414 km. north-west of Kildonan Castle, south-east Arran. Looking north. Buteshire. A close-up of a waterfall flowing over a dolerite sill. Composite dolerite sill overlying Triassic marls, sandstones and shales, giving rise to waterfall and landslips by the undermining of the softer sedimentary rocks. Beneath the fall the rocks are bent and broken by one or two small faults.
