... the Lewisian Gneiss Complex. The youngest concordant detrital zircon yields a maximum age of 1060±18 Ma for the Torridon Group (Applecross Formation). Our data, together with palaeocurrents from the Applecross Formation, suggest that the Torridon Group could have been deposited by a late to post-Grenvillian...
