Description: Beinn Bhan of Applecross, Ross & Cromarty. Characteristic scenery of the Torridon Sandstone; typical corrie with moraine material in foreground left by glacier emanating from corrie. Thickly-bedded red-brown sandstones of the Applecross Formation (Torridon Group, Torridonian) dip gently to right. Good subvertical and horizontal jointing aids formation of subvertical cliffs. Main valley in foreground contains local moundy morainic deposits.
