The coastal margin exposures of the Moray Firth basin, north-east Scotland, include
important outcrops of Permo-Triassic to Jurassic sediments deposited in sub-tropical
aeolian, fluvial and marine environments. The reservoir and source-rock potential of these
rocks is equivalent to that of the Mesozoic strata of the prolific North Sea hydrocarbon
province. The strata display a diverse range of sedimentary and diagenetic structures, as
well as Caledonian fold systems and tetrapod trace fossils. The more recent effects of basin
faulting on sedimentation patterns and mineralisation may also be observed.
