Description: Mamore Forest looking south from the summit of Ben Nevis. Inverness-shire. A dissected plateau. Mountains of interfolded Glencoe Quartzite and Leven Schists, from left to right Sgurr Eilde Mor, Binnein Beag and Binnein Mor. Glen Nevis in foreground. The former plateau, an area of comparatively flat ground has been deeply dissected mainly by the series of glaciations during the Quaternary era but also by fluvial (river) action between the glaciations and after. Forms part of a panorama with C01767 and C01768.
