Fossil plants from the Barren Red Measures of the Burnock water near Ochiltree are recorded from about 300 metres above the Skipsey marine band and indicate a high Westphalian C, low Westphalian D, age. Other fossiliferous horizons from the area are noted and it is considered that the Barren Red Measures (Upper Coal Measures) represent a Westphalian C to a Low Westphalian D age in the central Aryshire District.
