Description: Gualann na' Leac, Beinn na' Leac, south-east Raasay, Inverness-shire. A close-up of the Jurassic cliffs of Inferior Oolite, dipping westwards. The Inferior Oolite of Raasay consists of two lithological divisions: a great mass of sandstone 600 feet thick, resting on a series of shales about 20-70 feet thick. The latter is rarely exposed though forms a well-defined sloping feature at the base of the sandstone. The strata for the most part is a relatively soft sandstone, yellowish along fresh fractures and with a white surface on weathering. The lowest 50 feet is calcareous.
