Geophysical, shallow drilling and sea-bed sampling investigations have shown that the main sedimentary basin of the Moray Firth is separated by an ENE-trending, horst-like uplift zone from a secondary basin to the south. Mesozoic sequences are broadly conformable and are dissected by a radiate fault pattern; faulting was most active in pre-Mid Jurassic times. Contrary to previous suggestions, the pattern of outcrop preludes any Mesozoic of Tertiary strike-slip movement on the Great Glen Fault.
