The origin of the southern Midland Valley Old Red Sandstone Conglomerates is reviewed with the specific aim of determining the nature and location of the source for the Old Red Sandstone Greywacke Conglomerate. The Silurian Midland Valley has been viewed as either i) a fore-arc basin with a rising trench-slope basin to the south (Leggett, , Legget et al. ) or ii) an inter-arc basin.

      (). Sedimentation and provenance of post-Valentian conglomerates up to and including the basal conglomerate of the Lower Old Red Sandstone in the southern part of the Midland Valley of Scotland. PhD Thesis, (). Sedimentation and tectonics. (). The Middle Old Red Sandstone of the Orcadian cuvette consists of both lacustrine and lake margin sediments. The lacustrine sediments are dominated by a monotonous rhythm, or cyclic sedimentary sequence, resulting from long-term cycles of transgression .

      The old red sandstone lies under this rock, though at too great a depth to admit of quarrying. In the upper district are to be seen beautiful specimens of conglomerate, and numerous blue and purple pebbles appear in the decomposed trap.

Data. The Old Red Sandstone comprises two cycles of basin fill: the older (the Lower Old Red Sandstone) is separated by a major unconformity from the younger (the Upper Old Red Sandstone). Each cycle begins with conglomeratic sedimentation in pull-apart.

Trench, P. Haughton. The Lower Old Red Sandstone lithofacies contains strata ranging in age from Wenlock (Silurian) to Emsian (Devonian). Prior to this review, there were well over valid formations and members in the late Silurian to early Devonian Lower Old Red Sandstone. The new term Lanark Group includes all late Silurian to Devonian formations in.

The Perthshire book Red Sandstone is an assemblage of rocks in the North Atlantic region largely of Devonian age. It extends in the east across Great Britain, Ireland and Norway, and in the west along the northeastern seaboard of North also extends northwards into Greenland and Svalbard.

These areas were a part of Perthshire book ancient continent of Euramerica/Laurussia. Sedimentary rocks in the Lower Old Red Sandstone have similar detrital zircon age distributions, which are dominated by c. Ga zircons as well as late Neoproterozoic grains.

This indicates a dominant contribution of detritus of Laurentian affinity as well as contributions from westerly and southerly. The Lower Old Red Sandstone rocks of the Perth area lie between the main Ochil mass to the south-west and the Sidlaws to the north-east.

Eleven hundred metres of Arbuthnott Group lavas in the Ochil Volcanic Formation are exposed here, consisting mainly of basalts with a lower porphyritic group and an upper non-porphyritic group.

The Tay enters Strathmore through the Pass of Birnam near Dunkeld. Strathmore is a broad vale of soft Old Red Sandstone rocks some 80 km lower Tay and its tributaries lie in these soft rocks. The Romans were the first to settle on the lower Tay, founding a number of settlements including a signal station where the Tay and Isla join.

The Scottish Old Red Sandstone (ORS) lavas are of vital importance for establishing the struc- ture of the Lower Devonian geomagnetic field and may have great potential significance for evaluat- ing aspects of the tectonic evolution of the British Isles during mid-Palaeozoic. the ‘New Red Sandstone’ (see the companion GCR volume by Benton et al., ) to distinguish them from the Old Red Sandstone, rocks that are about million years (Ma) older.

In the early days of geological research in the s, the Old Red Sandstone was included in the Carboniferous System, but soon after was given separate status and. The Perthshire Book This collection of essays is the story of Perthshire, Scotland's heartland, where many of her greatest treasures are to be found.

The district resonates with folklore and incident; it was the birthplace of Rob Roy and also inspired some of Scott's finest work. Paterson, I B and Harris, A L.

A lithostratigraphical framework for the Devonian (Old Red Sandstone) rocks of Scotland south of a line from Fort William to Aberdeen. Perthshire is a large inland county in the centre of Scotland, consisting of a main body and a small detached portion. The latter comprises the parishes of Culross and Tulliallan, and is separated from the former by a belt of Clackmannanshire and Fife, which is only 1¾ mile wide at its narrowest part; it is 6¼ miles long from E to W, and 4½ miles broad from N to S, and contains an area of.
