Description: Oblique aerial view of Arkle illustrating the Cambrian-Lewisian unconformity and the extremely well-developed scree slopes. Sutherland. View looking east with Ben Hope in background. Pale-coloured Cambrian quartzites form the crest of the ridge and rest unconformably on Lewisian gneiss. Note the very marked change from the lower Lewisian slopes with their rocky hummocky terrain to the well-bedded lighter coloured Cambrian rocks. Scree is a sheet of loose fragmental material lying on a mountain slope usually accumulating at the base of a cliff.
