Description: The Strathblane Hills looking north from Strathblane. Stirlingshire. Escarpments of lava flows of the Clyde Plateau Volcanic Formation dipping to east and overlying the Lower Carboniferous, Inverclyde Group, Ballagan Formation. Both the foreground and the hills are formed of the Clyde Plateau Volcanic Formation but they are part of two discrete largely fault-bounded lava blocks of the Kilpatrick Hills and the Campsie Hills respectively. They have their own stratigraphy and petrographical characteristics. The lava sequences are of similar age but correlation between the blocks is limited. The photograph shows a good view of Strathblane in c. 1913.
