Caption: Beinn Eighe, from Glen Grudie. Looking south-south-east. Ross & Cromarty. A mountain of Torridonian sandstone capped unconformably by quartzite, distant view of Ruadh Stac Mor with Sail Mhor on the right. A stand of Scots pine is in the foreground.
Description: Beinn Eighe, from Glen Grudie. Looking south-south-east. Ross & Cromarty. A mountain of Torridonian sandstone capped unconformably by quartzite, distant view of Ruadh Stac Mor with Sail Mhor on the right. A stand of Scots pine is in the foreground. These outliers of Cambrian rocks on the western end of the Beinn Eighe ridge rest with a gentle unconformity on the much older Torridonian rocks. The structure contrasts significantly with the eastern end where the rocks are folded with minor thrusts into long parallel strips between intervening Torridonian sandstone.
