Description: Oblique aerial view of Coire Lagan, Cuillins, Skye showing the glaciated corrie and corrie loch in the hanging valley. Sgurr Dearg on the left, Sgurr Mhic Choinnich and Sgurr Alasdair on the right. The area is part of the Cuillins Igneous Complex and is composed of mainly gabbros. A superb example of the development of scree in a 'stone chute' as they are called locally, can be seen on the left wall of the corrie. This one is the Sgurr Dearg Stone Chute.
