Caption: The Bonawe Quarries, located on the north shore of Loch Etive, lying to the east of Connel Bridge, Argyll-shire.
Description: View north of current quarry face within the monzodioritic Cruachan facies of the early Devonian (c. 400 million year old) Etive pluton. Massive 10 m. microdiorite dyke associated with later phases of the Etive complex cross cuts both rafts and xenoliths of Dalradian metesediment incorporated into the magam during pluton emplacement, and the host monzodiorite. Both host and dyke show massive angular joint fractures developed during pluton cooling.
