Description: Oblique aerial view looking south-south-west along Carn Mor Dearg ridge. Inverness-shire. The Inner Granite, part of the Ben Nevis Complex. The photograph shows the prominent ridge of the Inner Granite facies of the Ben Nevis Complex. It forms a classical ring dyke intruding the Outer Granite and enclosing the central volcanics, the latter forming the prominent cliff face on the right-hand side of the picture. There are three parts to the Ben Nevis Complex, the Outer Granite, steeply-bounded against the contact-altered schists, a continuous inner ring of the Inner Granite older than the Outer Granite, and the central core consisting of 2000 ft. of Lower Old Red Sandstone volcanic rocks overlying Dalradian metasedimentary rocks.
