Description: North face of Sgorr Ruadh, Achnashellach, Ross & Cromarty. Thrust plane; Torridonian sandstone thrust over Cambrian quartzite, and showing folding in Torridonian sandstone just above thrust plane. The abrupt change in colour, with the pale Cambrian quartzite below and the dark Torridonian sandstone above, marks the plane of the thrust. Gentle, open folds of the bedding in the Torridonian strata can be seen above the thrust plane. The quartzite below the thrust plane has been shattered and broken into small blocks, but at the bottom right in the photo the bedding in the quartzites is conspicuous.
