Description: Lower Carboniferous bedded trachytic agglomerates and tuffs with large ejected lava blocks. Note how the bedding is distorted around the blocks by impact and later differential compaction. Volcanic 'bombs' in bedded, trachyte ashes. Located in the southern part of the Clyde Plateau volcanic outcrop this exposure is part of the c. 900 m. thick succession of salic lavas and associated pyroclastic rocks.
