Description: South Screapadal, Raasay, Inverness-shire. Faulting in the Jurassic rocks. The triangular (grassy) wedge of Lower Lias is faulted against cliffs of Inferior Oolite. The fault is a major north-east trending fault that extends across the island from Holoman to Screapadal. The downthrow has been estimated at c. 1000 feet with the younger Jurassic rocks to the south and the much older Precambrian Torridonian rocks to the north.
