Description: Inverlair Gorge, River Spean. Grampian Region. The type section through massive psammites and quartzites with semipelitic layers of the Inverlair Psammite Formation of the Grampian Group. The valley is in its early stages of development. Downcutting by the river is prevalent, however there is some erosion of the upper valley walls as shown by the upper slopes opening out. The occurrence of a 20 m. thick igneous dyke that is found for several hundred metres has probably been an influence on the formation of the gorge and Inverlair Falls.
