Description: Meall a' Ghiubhais, Beinn Eighe, Loch Maree, Ross & Cromarty. Outlier (klippe) of Lewisian, Torridonian and Cambrian strata, above Kinlochewe thrust plane, resting on Cambrian An t-Sron Formation rocks. Foreground consists of quartzites of the Lower Cambrian Eriboll Sandstone Formation. This passes up, in the vegetated area at the foot of the hill into mudstones and sandstones of the An t-Sron Formation, and limestones of the Durness Group are locally present underneath the Kinlochewe Thrust. Above the Kinlochewe thrust plane, the rocks are mostly Torridonian sandstones (Diabaig and Applecross formations), but small inliers of Lewisian gneiss and thrust slices of Cambrian quartzite are present.
