Description: River North Esk at the old Suspension Bridge, 1.1 km. north-north-east of Gannochy Bridge, 3.2 km. north-north-east of Edzell, Kincardine. Conglomerates of the Lower Old Red Sandstone exposed by river erosion in the gorge of the River North Esk on both sides of Gannochy Bridge, north of Edzell. It is thought that they were deposited in an alluvial fan bordering a scarp formed by the Highland Boundary Fault. They were deposited in an internal basin within what was then a large continent. The basin lay between the mountains of the Caledonian Orogeny and what would have been the newly formed Southern Uplands.
