Description: Oblique aerial view from above the Craigend Interchange (M90), looking north-east towards the Tay Valley below Perth. Lower Devonian lavas occur in the road-cuttings in foreground and forming Sidlaw Hills beyond River Tay. Much of the Tay flood plain seen is postglacial inter-tidal clay and silty clays (Carse Clays) or alluvium and post-Carse estuarine deposits. The area north of the river is fill of a buried channel of the River Tay, a late-glacial erosional feature.
