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. Flat floor of corrie formed by glacial erosion. Steep lip of corrie due to overdeepening of main valley by valley glacier. Note frost-shattered arete on right-hand spur.
