Description: Coire Gabhail, Glen Coe. Argyllshire. Corrie eroded in Lower Old Red Sandstone lavas (basic andesites, rhyolites, and hornblende-andesites). The straight course of the stream and the grassy hollows forming the crags on the right, are determined by north-north-east dykes; a large landslip from the cliff of rhyolite obstructs the burn. A cottage is seen by the road. A dyke is a sheet-like intrusive igneous body that cuts across the bedding or structural planes of the host rock. Coire Gabhail = corrie of the booty, known as the Lost Valley.
