Description: Oblique aerial view of Hopetoun Monument, Skid Hill, Garleton Hills, Traprain Law, and Lammermuir Hills, looking from the west-north-west. Very fine trap featuring of south-dipping trachyte lavas of the Lower Carboniferous Garleton Hills Volcanic Formation. Lower basaltic lavas form scarps in top left. The features have been increased by the effects of glaciation and meltwater channels. The lower arable ground is covered by glacial till and other superficial deposits. The hump-shaped hill of Traprain Law, far mid left, is an exhumed laccolith of phonolite, also Garleton Hills Volcanic Rocks age. The rounded Lammermuir Hills on the skyline, lying across the Southern Upland Fault, consist of Ordovician and Silurian folded greywackes and shales of the Southern Upland Terrane.
