Description: View from 1 m. below Dalness, Glen Etive. Looking north-north-east. Argyllshire. The south end of the two Buchailles of Etive (953.72 m.) and (950.98 m.) separated by the Lairig Gartain which follows a north-north-east shatter belt. The hills are composed of rhyolite and andesite of Lower Old Red Sandstone age, invaded by Cruachan granite. River terraces backed by moraines in the foreground. Rhyolites are fine-grained to glassy acid igneous rocks. Andesites are fine-grained intermediate volcanic igneous rocks. A river terrace marks the position of a former flood plain when the river flowed at a higher level and before downcutting of the river.
