Description: Cambrian strata resting on Torridon Sandstone and overlain by thrust Lewisian gneiss, with infolds of Torridon Sandstone and Cambrian quartzite above Kinlochewe thrust plane. Panorama with B00067. Lower slopes consist of Torridonian sandstones (Applecross Formation). Prominent pale cliff with bedding sloping down to the right consists of quartzite of the Lower Cambrian Eriboll Sandstone Formation. The dark line at the top of the lower cliff marks the Kinlochewe Thrust plane. Above the thrust plane, Lewisian gneiss, Torridonian sandstone and Cambrian quartzite have been involved in complex folding before being carried from the east over the Cambrian rocks below.
