The structural relations of the Torridonian Pre-cambrian grits and sandstones to the Durness Cambro-Ordovician limestone in the Broadford district of southern Skye, western Scotland, are reexamined. The Torridonian was superposed on Durness limestone in the area southeast of Broadford by the Kishorn thrust. West of Broadford, new exposures show a window of Torridonian (formerly thought to be a group of klippes) and indicate that the Durness was probably thrust across the older Torridonian.
