The Devonian Old Red Sandstone in the vicinity of the Great Glen Fault (GGF) in Scotland contains two different components residing in hematite: a postfolding Carboniferous CRM1 in the Loch Ness area and a Cretaceous or perhaps Triassic CRM2 near Hilton. The CRM1 could be related to major fluid flow events in the Late Paleozoic which caused hematite authigenesis and remagnetization along other faults in Scotland. The CRM2 near Hilton was also related to a fluid event in the Cretaceous or Triassic which caused hematite authigenesis. The presence of different CRMs residing in hematite along different segments of the GGF is similar to what has been reported for other major faults in Scotland. (C) 2006 Elsevier B.V.
