Summary:Psammitic and semi-pelitic metasediments in the Corrieyairack and Loch Killin areas of Scotland form part of the Grampian division and underlie the Dalradian Leven schist of Glen Roy. Two stratigraphic successions have been recognized, the Corrieyairack and Glenshirra successions, which share a common structure and metamorphic history, though they are separated by a well-defined zone of high strain (the Gairbeinn slide).
