Caption: Loch Coire Mhic Fhearchair, Beinn Eighe, 8.8 km. west of Kinlochewe. Ross & Cromarty.
Description: The unconformity represents a substantial break in the geological record. The Cambrian rocks are not in continuous succession with the much older Torridonian rocks. Cambrian quartzite resting unconformably on Torridonian sandstone. The loch is located in a typical hanging corrie. The last glaciers would have retreated into valleys such as these.
