Caption: The Storr from the south part of the Trotternish lava-scarp. Skye.
Description: The Bearreraig River, the outlet for Loch Leathan and Loch Fada, was dammed in the mid 1950's and the level of the two lochs raised. Landslipped lavas and Jurassic sediments form the ground to the right of the escarpment. In the foreground a glacially eroded hollow in Jurassic sediments is occupied by the two lochs Fada and Leathan, which supply water for the Bearreraig Hydro-electric Station.
