Description: Oblique aerial view of Quinag. Sutherland. The Torridonian-Lewisian unconformity. Loch Assynt on the right and the partially snow-covered slopes of Ben More Assynt in the distance. View looking south-east. A relict mountain of Torridonian sandstone on an irregular basement of Lewisian gneiss. The line of the south-west face of Quinag is controlled by a fault which, for part of its length, coincides with the Torridonian-Lewisian contact.
