Description: Carn Eilrig from Rothiemurchus Forest. Inverness-shire. Creag an Leth-choin (Lurcher's Crag) and Cairngorm are on left, separated from these by Lurcher's Gully is Braeriach, on the right, in distance. All the hills are formed of a large granite batholith emplaced at a depth of 4-6 km. at c. 408 Ma. The Cairngorm summits form the highest of a series of stepped erosion surfaces which are found across north-east Scotland. They date from the Tertiary period before the glaciers. One theory on the origin of the surfaces is that they formed by marine erosion.
