Tarlair coastal exposure

Moray, NE Scotland

Dalradian metasediments of the Macduff Slate Formation. These turbiditic metasandstones and metamudstones are folded into large upright anticlines and synclines. At the small-scale, well-developed cleavage can be observed within these units. Bedding/cleavage relationships can be used here to establish positions on the fold, particularly where isoclinally folded.

The three virtual outcrops here show the structure at different scales, from the entire locality to a detailed view of bedding/cleavage relationships.
