Description: Coire nam Beithach, Glen Coe. Argyllshire. A hanging valley - a corrie is situated above the waterfalls and below the summit of the twin peaks of Bidean nam Bian. The rocks are phyllites at the base overlain by the Lower Old Red Sandstone volcanic rocks. Both form part of the Glencoe Cauldron Subsidence. The twin summits of Bidean nam Bian (1147.88 m.) can be seen at the head of the corrie. The house is Achnambeithach.
