Sharp lateral changes in structural geometry of ductile thrust stacks are not widely reported. A regional-scale lateral culmination wall forms the southern boundary of the Cassley Culmination in Moine rocks in the Caledonides of Sutherland, Northern Scotland. This culmination wall is part of the Oykel Transverse Zone (OTZ), a kilometre-scale shear zone characterized by constrictional finite strain fabrics aligned sub-parallel to the regional WNW-directed thrust transport direction. Main phase folds and fabrics in the transverse zone hanging wall are folded by main phase folds and fabrics in the footwall, thus recording foreland-propagating ductile deformation. South of the Cassley Culmination,...
