The rocks in this area are part of the Pre Cambrian rocks deposited over 400 million years ago.

This was my first field trip. I returned from a sunny holiday in Tererife two days before so I was well wrapped up for the April chill.

The main impression is of massive jagged rocks in a deserted area.
