Description: Bla Bheinn (Blaven) from Druim Hain, Skye, Inverness-shire. Layered gabbro cut by cone-sheets and dykes. The ridge from Bla Bheinn (right) to Garbh-bheinn (left) is made of layered gabbros similar to those of the Cuillins. The gabbros are cut by a series of doleritic cone-sheets, dipping gently westward to a centre near Loch Coruisk, and by many subvertical south-east-striking dolerite dykes. The lower ground in the centre-distance is underlain by an intrusion of red granophyric granite, which cuts the layered gabbro and the cone-sheets.
