Description: Suilven, west face, a relict mountain of Torridonian sandstone rising from a basement of Lewisian gneiss. Sutherland. Typical of this country are steep-sided, isolated mountains of Torridonian sandstone unconformably sitting on, and rising abruptly from a considerably older high grade metamorphic Lewisian gneiss basement which forms a typical 'rock ridge and boggy hollow' terrain.
