Description: Lochinver village, Sutherland, looking south-east. Platform of Lewisian gneiss, with isolated peaks (Suilven and Cul Mor) of the overlying Torridonian sandstone. Panoramic view with B00041 and B00042. Typical hummocky terrain formed of Lewisian gneiss immediately behind houses. Suilven (left) and Cul Mor (right) consist of subhorizontally-bedded Torridonian sandstone (Applecross Formation) which forms almost sheer cliffs, due to good vertical jointing. A small cap of Cambrian quartzite is preserved on Cul Mor.
