"Study of the small-scale structures of south-eastern Cowal provides information about the movement history in an assemblage of grits and slates wherein the original sedimentary structures and textures are discernible. A sequence of folds of both Caledonoid (NE-SW) and crossfold (NW-SE) axial directions can be recognized, with corresponding successive cleavages or schistosities. In the rocks of higher metamorphic grade towards the axial region of the Cowal anticline the earlier structures are largely obscured by recrystallization."
