Description: North face of Beinn Liath Mhor, Achnashellach, Ross & Cromarty. Folded and thrust Cambrian quartzite and Torridonian sandstone. At extreme right of view Cambrian quartzite dipping to the left overlies Torridonian sandstone. Dips to the left continue to just left of centre of quartzite outcrop. From there to the thrust, where dark Torridonian rocks are moved over Cambrian strata, the rocks are folded in a syncline whose easterly (left) limb is vertical to overturned. The complementary antiform, bringing up Torridonian strata to the level of the ridge, has been cut out and replaced by a thrust. A second outcrop of Cambrian strata in the far left of the photo, is truncated to the left by a second thrust.
