Description: Cnoc na Sroine and the area under and to the left of the loch is part of a post-Cambrian, Caledonian alkaline igneous intrusive complex called the Loch Borralan Complex. The complex is composed of an earlier suite of mafic and ultramafic syenites intruded as a sheeted complex and a later plug-like body of saturated and oversaturated syenites. It lies between the Sole Thrust and the Assynt (Ben More) Nappe and has been dated at c. 430 Ma. The rounded hill on the right is Cnoc na Sroine, the type locality of Borralanite. Altnacealgach is on the green patch on the right of the loch. Sutherland.
