Description: Minister's Pool', River Inver, west of Loch Assynt, Sutherland. Typical scenery of the Lewisian gneiss. Mountains of Torridon Sandstone in distance. Hummocky terrain, with ice-smoothed hillocks and many poorly-drained hollows, typically filled by lochans, is typical of areas of Lewisian outcrop. In places, linear features may be formed by Scourie dykes, or by shear belts within the Lewisian complex. The mountain in the distance is Quinag, made largely of Torridonian sandstone, but with a thin capping of Cambrian quartzite on Spidean Coinich (far right).
