Description: Burn at Druim Poll Eoghainn, 1 m. south-south-west of Knockan, 13.7 km. south-south-west of Inchnadamph, looking east, Sutherland. The outcrop of the Moine Thrust plane. The bared sole of the thrust plane lies over successive schuppen of Cambrian dolomitic limestones of the Eilean Dubh Group. Cliffs of flaggy Moine schists are seen on the right. The Moine Thrust is the highest thrust in the Moine Thrust Zone, a zone of thrusting associated with folding and low-grade metamorphism that stretches from Loch Eriboll to the north coast of Skye and probably to the Sound of Iona. Schuppen or imbricate structure is a tectonic structure displayed by a series of nearly parallel and overlapping high-angle reverse faults or thrusts. It forms a series of similar wedges that have the same displacement and are all inclined in the same direction.
