The galic name Eas A Bradain in English means Waterfall of the Salmon.
Eas a Bradain is were the first collecting was done in 1998. The collecting area is bounded on the northwest by Loch Ainort. The minerals recorded here have been collected in various areas from 1 km north of the waterfall to 4 km northeast of the waterfall. Mostly eather side of the A850 road, from the Loch Ainort and Glas Bheinn Mhor epigranites contact zones, to the village of Luib.

The Loch Ainort and Glas Bhienn Mhor are two of the fifteen or so small epigranitic intrusions in the Cullin complex. Glas Bhienn Mhor is the younger of the two epigranites, and is part of the so called Eastern Red Hills Centre. While the Loch Ainort epigranite is part of the Western Red Hills Centre, which includes the Glamaig granite. The two epigranites forming an 'L' shape around Loch Ainort, central Skye. The contact between the two epigranites is crossed by the A850 at NG546268. It is here that many of the more "unusual" minerals were found in 1998-2004. In common with most others epigranites in the Cullin complex thay are very miarolitic with cavities up to 6 cm (on Marsco (NG507255) cavites to 15 cm have been found).
Studys are on going at this and other epigranites on Skye. (A start has been made on the so called Eastern Red Hills centre (Coire Gorm)). Another noted fact is that the Glas Bhienn Mhor is far richer in zeolite species than all the epigranites so far investigated.
