Description: Creag Mannrichean, Bealach Mor, etc. Achnashellach, Ross & Cromarty. Torridonian sandstone thrust over Cambrian quartzite. Near view of outcrop of thrust plane. Above the white scree are Torridonian (Applecross Formation) sandstones which have been thrust over Cambrian quartzite (Eriboll Formation). The Cambrian outcrop, marked by pale scree, lies in the core of a synclinal fold whose upper limb has been removed by the thrust. The break of slope below the pale scree probably marks the lower contact of the Cambrian rocks.
