Caption: Loch Glencoul. Looking towards the north-east across the loch from the track going down to Newton. Sutherland.
Description: Above the scarp lies a peaty platform composed of Cambrian Pipe Rock with some 'Fucoid' Beds at the eastern edge. Above the platform rises gneiss which has been carried on the combined Sole and Glencoul Thrust Planes and forms the main hill of Aird da Loch. Glencoul Thrust Plane: on the far side of the loch is the peninsula of Aird da Loch. Undisturbed easterly-dipping Cambrian quartzites can be seen forming the prominent scarp above the grey knolls of Lewisian gneiss.
