Caption: Beinn Eighe (left), Ruadh - Stac Beag (centre) Meall Chiubhais (right), from the north-east. Ross & Cromarty.
Description: The greater part of the Beinn Eighe ridge is composed of Cambrian quartzites resting unconformably on the much older Torridonian Sandstone. A small patch of Fucoid Beds and overlying Serpulite Grit occur on Sgurr Ban. The conspicuous valley in the centre is the Allt na Doire-daraich, a track can be seen just to the left ascending the mountain. Shows three platforms of denudation, mountain peaks forming 'monadnocks'; intermediate platform cut out of thrust quartzite and Torridon sandstone; the valley above Loch Maree not seen but (to the right) now being filled up by a delta.
