Description: Oblique aerial view of Stac Polly (Stac Pollaidh) and Cul Mor. Torridonian-Lewisian unconformity. View north-eastwards. Relict mountains of reddish-brown Torridonian sandstone resting unconformably on an irregular basement of Lewisian gneiss. The steep western flanks of Cul Mor are heavily gullied while below the bristling rocky summit of Stac Pollaidh is a now vegetation-covered scree slope.
