Description: Liathach (Leagach) rising 3456 ft. from the shores of Upper Loch Torridon, taken from from Sail Mhor at the western end of the Beinn Eighe ridge. The peak is Spidean a' Choire Leith (peak of the grey corrie). Looking south. Ross & Cromarty. A mountain of Torridonian sandstone capped unconformably by Cambrian basal quartzite with a very small outcrop of pipe rock on the extreme summit. The lighter Cambrian rocks markedly contrast with the darker, lower, Torridonian red arkoses and pebbly grits.
