As is well known the northern face of Garbh Bheinn, which rises from Loch Leven east of Caolasnacon farm, is occupied by a “very obvious asymmetric downfold” of inversion Eilde Quartzite (Hardie, 1952, p. 273; Bailey, 1934, p. 485). The inversion is established by current bedding and is unquestioned. The Eilde Quartzite here floats on Eilde Schist, younger than itself. The occurrence marks the western end of the Kinlochleven Inversion, one of the most remarkable geological structures known to science.
