Description: Traligill River, Inchnadamph, looking downstream (west), Sutherland. Bare inclined thrust plane in Cambrian limestone. At Inchnadamph a large number of closely-spaced thrust planes occur in the lower part of the Cambrian Durness Limestone, causing it to be repeated many times, and to be shattered. This has increased its susceptibility to solution by rainwater. As a result, Inchnadamph is one of the few places in Scotland where well-developed karst topography occurs, dry valleys, sink holes and an extensive cave system.
