tinflaps
Hi all,
After a recent jaunt to the North West coast of Scotland I found this example. It’s 1.6kgs in weight, feels heavier than it should for it’s size and never seen anything like it before. It was half way up a hill well away from any paths or tracks in the middle of nowhere so it’s not man made. Found in the Gairloch area.
Any ideas?

Iron oxidised piece of quartz or sedimentary rock? It’s from an area with glacial features which might explain the smoothness, iron explaining the heaviness.

I'll go along with tinflap. Nicely coloured rock.
Best wishes from the Lake of Constance. Roger.
