Description: Coire na Ba, Applecross, Ross & Cromarty. Characteristic scenery of the Torridon Sandstone. On right is the then recently-constructed road over the Bealach na Ba, reaching over 600 m. above sea level. The road exploits a typical glaciated U-shaped valley with a well-developed corrie at its head. The cliffs on either side are made of gently-dipping sandstone of the Applecross Formation (Torridon Group, Torridonian).
