Photo of the Week

This small waterfall on the Inner Hebridean island of Eigg reveals many clues to its complex geological history. Eigg was mostly formed from basalt lava flows and intrusions, the remains of extensive volcanic activity 60 million years ago. These were underlain by sedimentary rocks from the Jurassic Period. The rocks of An Sgùrr were formed by a final, violent volcanic eruption, the last known volcanic activity in this area. Weathering and erosion of these basalt layers then produced Eigg’s terraced landscape which we see today.
