Description: Beinn Bhan of Applecross, Ross & Cromarty. Characteristic scenery of the Torridon Sandstone; typical 'hanging valley'. Thickly-bedded red-brown sandstones of the Applecross Formation (Torridon Group, Torridonian) dip subhorizontally. 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.
