Description: Oblique aerial view of Achadun Castle, Lismore. Argyll and Bute. The castle sits above the Main Rock Platform, a rock-cut, glacio-isostatically tilted Quaternary shoreline and cliff. The rocks belong to the Lismore Limestone Formation of the Blair Atholl Subgroup of the Dalradian Supergroup (Precambrian). They are a thick sequence of blue-grey flaggy limestones that repeatedly pass through a series of transitional beds into subordinate black slates.
