Description: Oblique aerial view of Beinn na' Leac, Raasay, Highland Region. Cliffs of Inferior Oolite (Jurassic). Landslip material covers much of the underlying strata. The Inferior Oolite on Raasay consists of two lithological divisions, a great mass of sandstone 600 feet thick, resting on a series of shales from 20 to 70 feet thick. There are few exposures of the shale though it forms a well-defined sloping feature almost everywhere at the foot of the sandstone. The shale forms its greatest thickness here, at the foot of Beinn na' Leac.
