Description: Quothquan Law, Thankerton, Lanarkshire, seen from the south. Devonian lavas. Isolated outlier of Lower Devonian (Lower Old Red Sandstone) trachyte lavas forming the top of Quothquan Law. The bottom part of the hill is formed of andesite, underlying the trachyte, the latter giving rise to the screes of pale rock seen near the top of the hill. Intermediate lavas of andesite and trachyte are a common feature of the Devonian succession in this area. They are interbedded with terrestrial sandstones and conglomerates, many of which are derived from the lavas.
