Description: Sgurr a' Ghaorachain, Applecross, Ross & Cromarty. Characteristic scenery of the Torridon Sandstone. Thickly-bedded red-brown sandstones of the Applecross Formation (Torridon Group, Torridonian) dip gently away from camera. Subvertical gullies in cliffs exploit joints and minor faults. Between hills are U-shaped glacial valleys.
