Description: View from Cairngorm. Looking south over Loch Avon towards Beinn Mheadhoin. Inverness-shire. The whole area is part of a large granite intrusion. Part of a panorama with C01370. Loch Avon (on left). The loch is partly moraine-dammed but to a great extent it is a rock basin in a trough formed by glacial erosion. Granite 'tors' weathering out on skyline of Beinn Mheadhoin (in centre). The tors are a preglacial feature formed by deep weathering though most have been significantly altered by later Quaternary processes.
