To show the outstanding features produced by the various volcanic rocks of Craiglockhart, Blackford and Braid Hills, and Arthur's Seat. The foreground is part of the Lower Devonian Warklaw Group of olivine-basalts, the Braid Hills and Blackford Hill on the distant right are trachytes and andesites respectively and of the same age. Both Craiglockhart and Arthur's Seat are younger Carboniferous igneous rocks, Arthur's Seat being the remnants of a long-extinct volcano.
