Description: Oblique aerial view at Hallaig Burn, Raasay, Highland Region. The contact between the Jurassic Broadford Limestone and Pabba Shale. The stream gully marks the contact in the Lower Lias (Jurassic) between the Broadford Limestone (seen in the prominent cliffs) and the Pabba Shales (covered by landslip material). Both formations are of marine origin. They form the two main lithological divisions of the Lower Lias and cause greatly contrasting landscapes, the limestone forms prominent scarps while the Pabba Shales forms smooth features due to its soft, shaly nature.
