Description: North face of Garbh Bheinn, Kinlochleven, Loch Leven, Argyllshire. Eilde Quartzite in the core of the downward-facing Tom Meadhoin Anticline surrounded by Eilde Schist. A belt starting with the top third of the mountain below the summit and running down to the right marks the outcrop of the Eilde Quartzite, which locally forms the base of the Appin Group (Dalradian Supergroup). The quartzite forms the core of the tight downward-facing (synformal) Tom Meadhoin Anticline, whose eastern limb is partly excised, with the stratigraphically overlying Eilde Schist to east and west. Being softer, the Eilde Schist (semipelite) forms rather smoother ground. In the left foreground, the village of Kinlochleven (largely obscured by trees) occupies what low ground is available (partly moundy glacial deposits, partly raised beach).
