Description: Oblique aerial view of Dumyat, western Ochil Hills, taken from the air north-west of Tullibody. Stirlingshire. The view shows the sharp Ochil fault-scarp. Menstrie can be seen on the right of the photograph. The high ground with the prominent hill of Dumyat is situated on lavas and agglomerates of Lower Devonian age. The Ochil Fault runs along the foot of the scarp, the low ground being underlain by downthrown Carboniferous rocks which are concealed by the drift-fill of the deep buried channel of the River Devon. Dalradian rocks beyond the Highland Boundary Fault in the far distance.
