Description: Beinn Bhan of Applecross, Ross & Cromarty. Characteristic scenery of the Torridon Sandstone; typical flat-bottomed ice-moulded valley (on right). Thickly-bedded red-brown sandstones of the Applecross Formation (Torridon Group, Torridonian) with subhorizontal dips form cliffs. Main valley has typical flat-floored U-shape, due to erosion by valley glacier. Note frost-shattered ridge in distance on right.
