Description: Knockan Cliff, 13.7 km. south-south-west of Inchnadamph, looking south, Sutherland. The outcrop of Moine Thrust plane. The sequence from top to bottom is: platy and crushed Moine schist; a wedge of Lewisian gneiss; the thrust plane; white crystalline marble (Cambrian). The Moine Thrust Zone is a zone of thrusting associated with folding and low-grade metamorphism. It forms a narrow but continuous belt stretching south-west from Loch Eriboll on the north coast to Skye. Within the zone there are several major thrusts, the Moine Thrust is the highest and formed the earliest.
