Description: Sgurr of Eigg, Isle of Eigg. Inverness-shire. Pitchstone of the Sgurr of Eigg resting unconformably on lavas. The conglomerate exposed in the scar below the ridge underlies the pitchstone and also lies unconformably on the lavas. The lower massive upturned part of the pitchstone forms the Sgurr ridge and cross-cuts flows of the Eigg Lava Formation. A felsite sheet is visible in the pitchstone about half-way up the cliff face. The overhang at the base of the pitchstone is marked by pitchstone breccia and the pitchstone overlies patches of conglomerate.
