Description: Oblique aerial view of Ben Stack. Sutherland. Loch Stack and the Durness to Lairg road (A838) is seen at its foot. View looking west. Ben Stack is formed of steeply-dipping Lewisian gneiss. The narrow U-shaped valley occupied by Loch Stack has been eroded along the line of several granitic sheets which intrude the Lewisian parallel to its foliation. It also probably follows a major fault line.
