... Formation is lower Whitlandian, Arenig (comparable in age to the Dounans Limestone in the Highland Border Complex) and the Kirkton Formation is latest Llandeilian-Aurelucian, Llanvirn to Caradoc in age. It is concluded that there is a significant stratigraphical gap within the Crawford Group. The restricted...

The contact has generally been interpreted as the Highland Boundary Fault, but there are several sections known to the authors in which the junction is an indisputable unconformity (see below).

... by the fauna of the Dounans Limestone Formation, near Aberfoyle (Column 82). Ingham et al. (1986) extracted a large silicified trilobite fauna that could best be correlated with the Cassinian Stage of the Canadian Series of the North American succession. This was confirmed by analysis of the conodont fauna...

... with respect to Iapetus is uncertain. If the Leny Limestone is part of the Highland Border Complex (but see Tanner (1995)) then it is likely to be a tectonic sliver. However, its fauna belongs to the Laurentian province as does the Arenig Dounans limestone at Lime Craig Quarry. On this evidence, weak...
