Caption: The north-west face (868.38 m.) of Aonach Dubh, from near Clachaig, Glen Coe. Argyllshire.
Description: Lower Old Red Sandstone volcanic rocks. The rocks are preserved in a downfaulted block within an elliptical ring structure called a cauldron subsidence. A moraine mound in the foreground. The topmost scree-clad slope on right, consists of hornblende-andesite and agglomerate, which overlie thick flows of rhyolitic lavas and ignimbrites forming the upper part of the bluff. These overlie numerous flows of augite-andesite, which rest unconformably on phyllites. The hill slope on right consists of granite, 'Fault Intrusion', intruded into Highland schists (quartzite, etc.).
