Description: View looking eastwards up Glen Coe from the flank of Sgorr nam Fionnaidh. Argyllshire. Volcanic rocks (augite-andesites, rhyolites, and agglomerates) of Lower Old Red Sandstone age. Lower Old Red Sandstone volcanic rocks originally covered the whole area but are now only preserved in the Ben Nevis complex and here in the Glencoe complex. The volcanic rocks are preserved in a downfaulted block within an elliptical ring structure called a cauldron subsidence. At the time of formation in the Devonian, the whole area was very active with vulcanicity.
