Description: East and west Craiglockhart Hills from the Braid Hills, Edinburgh. Midlothian. View looking westwards to the volcanic platform of Craiglockhart. A farm, cottage and hayricks are seen in the foreground. The Braid Hills are Devonian trachyte lavas while in the distance, the Craiglockhart Volcanic Rocks are at or very close to the base of the Carboniferous Cementstone Group. The rocks, unique to the Craiglockhart area, are 100 ft. thickness of well-bedded, fine-grained tuffs with an overlying 100 ft. of basalt lava.
