Caption: An Steall, Glen Nevis. Inverness-shire.
Description: The waterfall 'An Steall' of the 'hanging valley' of Allt Coire a' Mhail is seen in the distance falling over a small recumbent fold of Glencoe Quartzite in the Leven Schists. An Garbhanach of the Mamore Forest is the peak. On left - water-worn surface of hornfelsed mica-schists, (Leven Schists) with pot-holes ('giant kettles') due to glacial stream cascading down marginal crevasse between ice and rock while the gorge was still filled with the Glen Nevis glacier.
