Abstract/Summary

This report describes the Bedrock and Superficial Geology of 1:10 000 Sheet NO76NW (Craig of Garvock) within the Strathmore area of eastern Scotland. It forms part of the revision of Montrose 1:50 000 Geological Sheet (57E). Strathmore forms a low vale bounded to the north by the Highland Boundary Fault (HBF), and to the south by the Sidlaw Hills. NO76NW is underlain by a Devonian sedimentary sequence with interdigitating contemporaneous igneous sheets. The northern edge of the field-mapped area (NO76NW) lies 1-2 km south of Laurencekirk, Kincardineshire, and the southern edge at St. Cyrus, just north of the River North Esk. The ground has greater relief than that either to the north (Strathmore) or to the south (Montrose Basin), and includes much of the elongate Hill of Garvock in the north, and associated minor hills to its south. Maximum elevation in the field area is 277 m O.D. on the Hill of Garvock, and the minimum is c. 60 m O.D. at the coastal village of St. Cyrus. The dominant grain of the landscape is southwest-northeast, reflecting major bedrock structures and the influence of ice-moulding.
