Cat Nick intrusion
Cat Nick intrusion
Just north of the Cat Nick cleft is a vertical intrusion of basalt. A strip two metres wide cuts into both the older Salisbury Craigs intrusion and the underlying sandstones.

The intrusion can be seen here as a strip differently coloured rock running down the centre of the picture, from the very top down right through the rocks in the foreground.

(The colour and saturation of the intrusion has been enhanced slightly in this picture to make it more obvious.)
