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. The dip of the Torridonian strata in the foreground is visibly less steep than that of the Cambrian quartzite. The lochans occupy hollows scoured by ice in the floor of the corrie.
