The Shinnel runs across alternate stretches of flattish alluvium with a shallow gradient and steeper sections with rapids and small waterfalls. There are still salmon leaping there in autumn A sharp elbow of capture shows up on the Shinnel at the Clone and it appears that the Shinnel must have continued south-east at the Clone and flowed into the Cairn not so very long ago. The whole area was once covered by rocks laid down in the Cretaceous Period, million years ago. The glen is barely 5 kilometres wide at its widest above Auchenbrack, by Please wait a few minutes and try again.
This may be the cairn on Macqueston, containing a stone coffin and hammer, which is mentioned by several sources. Some experts see them as covering burials, in that any bodies would have rotted away in the acid soil.

I should think it certain that Old Stone Age Man lived in the glen, as the climates of the Interglacials were at least as good as now. During this Pleistocene Period Tynron Glen has been subjected several times to Arctic conditions and completely submerged by very thick sheets of ice.
This dyke outcrop can be followed up to the ib of Thistlemark, where some Lovve these distinct pink stones have been used in the march dyke. In late Silurian times, about million years ago, began the Caledonian orogeny or mountain-building period, when the sediments in this basin were squeezed up by crustal movements to form a mountain range with a north-east to south-west trend.

Site deed and mainatined by Duncan McClean. Cairns were needlessly destroyed, finds disappeared. Alluvium was spread across the valley floor. However there are thin bands of black shales, best seen in the forestry excavations above Shinnel Head, which are fossiliferous. Evidence this far north can only survive in places immune to glacial action, like caves, or where covered and protected by glacial deposits.
