Description: The upstream end of Monessie Gorge. Grampian Region. Development of potholes in the Leven Schists Formation, Appin Group, Dalradian Supergroup. The gorge is cut into garnetiferous quartz-mica-schists of the Leven Schist Formation with a dominant spaced cleavage. The impressive potholes are due to abrasion rounded, massive quartzite and granodiorite boulders swept downstream from Inverlair and from the Strath Ossian Igneous Complex respectively.
