Description: Western cliffs of Quinag seen from near Tumore, west end of Loch Assynt, Sutherland. Escarpment of Torridonian sandstone resting upon irregular platform of Lewisian gneiss. Irregular moundy topography of foothills is typical of the Lewisian rocks. Well-jointed sandstone (Applecross Formation, Torridonian) forms the bulk of the cliffs. However, Spidean Coinich (at right end of cliff) and Sail Gharbh (in distance, through gap) are capped by quartzite of the Eriboll Sandstone Formation (Lower Cambrian).
