Description: Sgurr a' Ghaorachain, Applecross, Ross & Cromarty. Characteristic scenery of the Torridon Sandstone; typical 'hanging corrie'. 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. Corrie formed by ice-action in mountains has steep lip due to overdeepening of main valley by valley glacier. Note frost-shattered arete on right-hand spur.
