Description: Lochan an Iasgaich, 8.851 km. south-west of Kinlochewe. A fine example of the 'Ceud Cnoc' or 'Thousand Hills' topography. Ross & Cromarty. An assemblage of hummocky terminal and lateral moraines left by the wasting ice as the glaciers retreated at the end of the last ice age. The hills in the distance are mainly Torridonian sandstone and Cambrian quartzites.
