Description: Red Point, 3 km. west of Reay, Caithness. Migmatitic Moine psammite, cut by granite veins, overlain unconformably by Middle Devonian Caithness Flags. Stromatolites at unconformity. Moine psammite cut by abundant granite veins forms the headland and the lower part of the foreground cliffs (I).Flaggy siltstones of Middle Devonian age are unconformable on the older rocks at (III) and half-way up the foreground cliffs. The flags contain calcareous laminae, and stromatolites are developed a short distance above the irregular unconformity.
