Abstract

In 1922, Bailey postulated a major recumbent fold at Ben Lui, near Tyndrum in western Scotland. In 1954, Gilmour and McIntyre concluded that the evidence did not favor a recumbent fold. This paper presents evidence from the minor structures in the area that supports Bailey's concept. Deep gravitational flow is suggested as the mechanism by which the folds were fomed.
