Description: Oblique aerial view of Quinag and Lochan Bealach a' Chornaidh. Sutherland. The lochan is a fine example of a corrie loch lying in an ice-sculptured hollow which was once the source of a glacier. View looking west. Quinag, a relict mountain of Torridonian sandstone is overlain unconformably by the younger Cambrian sedimentary rocks that were deposited in a shelf sea on a remarkably flat erosion platform that progressively and gently subsided. The Cambrian rocks are the lighter rocks in the foreground.
