Description: South face of Beinn Liath Mhor, Achnashellach, Ross & Cromarty. Folded Torridonian and Cambrian strata with thrust Torridonian sandstone on right, above bare thrust plane of quartzite. The quartzite and sandstone are easily distinguished by colour. The slight angular discordance between the Torridonian (dark) and Cambrian (pale) strata becomes harder to see where the rocks are folded. White screes are developed at the foot of the Cambrian outcrop. Just below the skyline on the right is a bare surface of quartzite, marking the plane of the thrust along which the Torridonian strata have been moved upwards and westwards.
