Description: The north-east face of Suilven photographed from the Allt a' Ghlinne Dhorcha. On the right is Loch na Gainimh. On Suilven the first peak is Meall Bheag, the second, Meall Mheadhonach, at the far end is Caisteal Liath. Sutherland. Looking west. The foreground is the typical undulating Lewisian gneiss terrain onto which the Torridonian sandstone of Suilven was deposited on an ancient land surface into lakes or large alluvial fans and almost certainly in semi-arid conditions.
