Igneous rocks of the Georgeton Burn, Cleish Hills
Scottish Journal of Geology (December 2002) 38, Part 2: 137-141


Basaltic rocks in the Cleish Hills of Kinross-shire, previously described as lavas of the Clyde Plateau volcanic series, are shown to be later intrusions. This re-interpretation raises doubts about published correlations of these rocks and the possible origin of igneous rocks and breccias in the Loch Leven area during the period 325-295 Ma.
