Early work in the area of the Carn Chuinneag and Inchbae granitic gneiss complexes in the highlands of northwest Scotland indicated that the complexes occupied the core of a syncline in the Moine series. More recently, a study of the current bedding in the hornfelses confirms earlier conclusions on the stratigraphic sequence on the southeast side of the complex, but seems to indicate a different and a younger age for those on the northwest side. This is contradictory to the idea of a syncline.
