"Sedimentary structures in the lowest sub-division of the Torridonian of Skye are described and figured. Trough cross-stratification of the type known as festoon bedding is widely developed in the coarser grits. Finer-grained sandstones show curly-bedding structures due to post-depositional disturbances. Siltstones and mudstones are characterized by a fine lamination and by such structures as ripple-marks, minute graded bedding and desiccation cracks. The orientation of cross- laminae in the festoon-bedded grits indicates that the currents depositing these rocks flowed towards the north-east or east."
