Description: Fuar Tholl and Creag Mannrichean from Coire Lair, Achnashellach, Ross & Cromarty. Looking south. Torridonian sandstone thrust over Cambrian quartzite. The main part of Fuar Tholl (left and centre) is made of Torridonian sandstone (Applecross Formation) dipping gently to the left. On Creag Mannrichean, the Torridonian rocks dip to the right at the top of the higher crag, but dipping to the left below the snow patch and on the right-hand crag. To the right of the right-hand crag, the white scree marks an outcrop of Cambrian quartzite (Eriboll Formation) which occurs on the left side of the mountain, just out of view. On this side of the mountain the upper contact of the quartzite is a thrust, which has moved westwards along the axial plane of a fold which is preserved on the southern side of the mountain.
