Description: Oblique aerial view of Craig Rossie near Auchterader, taken from the east. The photograph shows a series of well-developed landslips just below the summit. A closer view. Rhyodacite lava forming the summit of Craig Rossie is in its original unlandslipped position. The lower rocky scarps mark successively landslipped parts of the same flow. Joints formerly near vertical now dip away from the hill and the upper surfaces of the slipped masses are tilted backwards, both effects are presumably caused by rotation during movement.
