Description: Sgurr nan Clach Geala, (1093 m.) from the north, Fannich Forest, Ross & Cromarty. Mountain and cliff scenery characteristic of the Moine psammite and pelite. Valley (on left) filled with hummocky glacial deposits. Steep slopes on left side of mountain largely made of flaggy, micaceous psammite (metamorphosed sandstone) while summit ridge is made of pelite (metamorphosed mudstone). Gentler slopes on right are made of Lewisian gneiss which has been thrust and folded with the Moine rocks during the Caledonian orogeny. Abundant hummocky glacial deposits fill valley on left.
