Description: View west of the Inverpolly Forest with the peaks of Torridonian sandstone, Cul Mor on the right, Cul Beag on the left taken from 1.5 km. north-east of Elphin. Sutherland. Looking west. The scenery is typical of the north-western seaboard of the Northern Highlands. Torridonian sandstone forms steep-sided, often isolated mountains rising abruptly and unconformably from a Lewisian basement.
