The Torridonian Sandstones date from the Pre-Cambrian & are amongst the oldest rocks to be found in the UK. The sandstones are a part of the Torridonian Supergroup which include arkoses, shales & conglomerates where they overlie the older Lewisian rocks. These sandstones are typically hard, coarse to fine grained with trough or planar cross bedding which suggests a palaeocurrent flowing from the North West out across large fan deltas. They are dark red to brown in colour indicating a partly arid depositional environment. Examples are supplied in labelled card trays.
