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) dip gently left and away from camera. Good subvertical and horizontal jointing aids formation of subvertical cliffs. Lip of corrie is large ice-smoothed rock pavement. Flat floor of corrie on right formed by glacial erosion. Note frost-shattered ridge in distance on right.
