Caption: Whiting Bay, south-east coast of Arran, Buteshire. Palaeocene dolerite dykes intrusive into Triassic sandstone.
Description: Whiting Bay, south-east coast of Arran, Buteshire. Palaeocene dolerite dykes intrusive into Triassic sandstone. The dyke in the centre of the photo is about 8 metres wide. It is one of many intruded during the emplacement of the subvolcanic centres of north and central Arran. The basaltic magma was intruded into cool country rock, and the dykes have fine-grained, chilled margins, and rather coarser-grained centres. Exposures of the surrounding sandstone can be seen in the middle distance, left.
