Description: South of Dun Caan, east side of the Island of Raasay, Inverness-shire. Fissures in Jurassic Inferior Oolite marking initial stages in the production of landslips. This fissure is typical of those that occur near the margins of the eastern cliffs, from Beinn na' Leac to Screapadal. They are usually at right angles to the direction of the cliffs, they are deep and vertical and vary in width from one to ten feet.
